Join in this refreshing conversation with Tiana Lemons, a Healthcare Studio Leader for architectural firm Orcutt | Winslow’s Nashville office.
For the past 25 years, Tiana has given her talent to designing healthcare facilities across the country. Both for-profit and not-for-profit organizations have benefited from her keen eye and design sensibilities, including HCA, The Healthcare Corporation of America, and Regional Care.
My favorite part of this conversation was how Tiana brought me into her world of healthcare design, how she stays organized on big projects and how she combines her vision for a project with the vision of her strategic partners--developers and architects alike.
Detail-oriented and highly organized, Tiana is an interior designer with business know-how. She has a positive, creative, and innovative approach to design. She presents a strong visual style with a high level of design ability, experience, professionalism, and the capacity to manage multiple projects.
Tiana is also a leader within her profession. A member of IIDA since 1991, she has served on the IIDA TN Chapter board for the past 5 years and continues to serve in an advisory role to the board. She has also volunteered as a liaison for IIDA headquarters to the ASHE board of directors. At the 2016 ASHE Conference (in Denver), she presented alongside other design professionals for the “Design Trends to Support Patient Center Design.” She continues to mentor young professionals and leads by example.

Most likely to be found at a Keith Urban concert—she saw him live seven times in one year. Does that make her a super fan? Yes.
Tiana has got a heart of gold. She volunteers with multiple non-profit organizations and is always the first to lend a hand.

FEATURED PRODUCT: NOKEN
Porcelanosa’s Noken factory is dedicated to the production of brassware and sanitaryware, and has created different bathroom lines including:
Porcelanosa has created many innovative bathroom products, including the COLD – ON faucet. This faucet line stands out because Porcelanosa changed the opening mechanism so that when the faucet is turned on, it does not automatically dispense a blend of hot water.
This feature can save hospitals and healthcare facilities thousands of gallons of hot water a year that never needed to be heated in the first place, or were needlessly discharged. These small aspects can help to make a big difference.
