Brigada in action: Children’s Hospital Rijeka

Every year we spend a lot of time, effort and resources to surpass the Christmas gifts of the past year, hoping for something superbly designed that tells our story. This year, we decided to do what we do best: create a space that improves the quality of everyday life for those who visit, in this case, a hospital. The design will benefit users and employees at labs for children with very serious diagnoses at Kantrida Children's Hospital in Rijeka.

Our intervention lasted for three days, and included complete remake of six laboratory rooms and one pediatric ambulance room. We painted the walls, dismantled and mounted the furniture, replaced the floor coverings, carved out the walls and finally delivered new chairs, couches and equipment that altogether created a whole new environment with the new spatial organization.

Once again, we have confirmed that the result of designing a space is not simply the walls and elements in it, but also the smiles on the faces of the lab's staff.We would like to thank the partners who participated in this project: M Architects, Slaven Lunar Kosanović, IV Construction, Design Floor, Breza Carpenter, Velinac and Offertissima.
