Pediatric Hematology Oncology Unit Renovation
Catania - first prize
This goal is obtained by the creation of a big glazed partition wall but, first of all, by the insertion of a long green ribbon, a new skin, able to transform the rigid spatiality of the Unit into a fluid form that houses new and different functions to make comfortable the children’s daily life inside the hospital. In proximity of the glass partition it was created a specific place equipped with a bench in continuity between the interior and the exterior space of the ward and an intercom device to permit the acoustic communication between the children and their parents. Privacy is achieved by a perforated steel sheet that protects the private conversation from the mixed-use of the hall.
