The undulating ceiling of thin wooden strips was so designed that every point in the room was acoustically "alive". The reflections from the ceiling were planned so that the so und waves would be distributedas far as poss ible from the speaker, no matter where he stood in the room or along its periphery.

Die Heizung ist eine Deckenstrahlungsheizung, jedoch bildet nicht die ganze Decke den «Heizkörper». Die Heizplatte ist so gerichtet, daß eine konzentrierte Strahlung auf das Fußende, aber keine konstante starke Strahlung gegen den Kopf des Patienten kommt. Der Rest des Zimmers erhält nur eine leichte, kaum spürbare Strahlung. Durch die Spezialkonstruktion des Fensters wird eine Art natürliche Vorwärmung der frisch einströmenden Luft ermöglicht. Die kalte Außenluft strömt diagonal durch den «Fensterkasten», wobei die Einfallsöffnungen möglichst weit vom Patienten liegen.
