In settings where life is preserved, every square inch of space counts. This is readily apparent in highly complex Healthcare environments, as technical demands are balanced with the needs of patients, caregivers, physicians, and staff. Thiel Design Group involves healthcare professionals at the ground level of design. As a result, high functionality for practitioners is balanced by comfort and convenience for patients and caregivers.


Our long-lasting relationships with complex medical and laboratory clients around the Houston metro area demonstrate the commitment to excellence ingrained in every team member. We believe that to be successful at this work, we must be meticulous. This extends from coordination amongst the design team to accurately recording meeting notes, and everything in between and after. The precision in our work delivers spaces that allow for true advancement in Science & Technology, real breakthroughs that affect the people in our lives and the communities where we live and work.
