A hospital for children with cancer is where they spend a lot of time, in the process of chemotherapy or recovery. This is a separate area, entry is prohibited for strangers, and there is a special disinfection apparatus in front of the entrance, which all parents and doctors must go through since children's immunity is weakened.
In our project, we set the main task to support the child's mood through the interior. We chose pastel and soft colours, soft enveloping shapes, and lines. The concept of forms is to bring children together, so a wave-like bench is built around the perimeter of the space
A feature of the project is also the impossibility of attaching to the walls, as this is a public institution. Therefore, we came up with a completely autonomous design, which can also be moved if desired to another location!
Functionally, this playground provides a place for children of all ages: small children can draw at a low table, on the wall of which all the supplies for creativity are provided. Older children can play around the board, teenagers can sit on the couch under the tree and chat. Also, this space is transformed into a collective work such as workshops or lectures
The bench flows into the table and there is a tree above it, all elements are made by BE according to our drawings from specially processed plywood
