Starting Point
Conception of a new paediatric clinic in close proximity to the existing hospital structures.
The façades are defined by circumferential strip windows that span the structure.

Inside, the challenge was to pair the child-friendly atmospheres with the functional efficiency of modern and advanced health care.
The choice of materials and colour scheme are consistent, minimalist, and convey the feeling of «youthful lightness and freshness».
