2020 shortlists

EKH Children's Hospital
by IF (Integrated Field)

Shortlisted for leisure and wellness interior of the year at Dezeen Awards 2020, EKH Children's Hospital features components of a playground and children's furniture in Samut Sakhon, Thailand.

Recognising that hospitals can be uncomfortable places for adults to visit, medical institutions are attempting to create more pleasant and welcoming environments. The studio wanted to extend this to children's facilities.

The studio aimed to make the hospital a fun place by incorporating playground features. The studio has generated a comfortable, friendly and safe atmosphere by installing giant slider, transforming waiting area of each clinic into a playground, designing furniture in sizes that correspond with children's body proportions.

The practice also employs a palette of pastel colours to encourage children's use of imagination.
