Living Design Center OZONE - Tokyo It is a temporary open space for all ages, where they can stay and spend time together in their own ways.

The nature theme of Nationwide Children’s is carried throughout the hospital, with each floor given unique theming to help with wayfinding. Bedside nursing accommodations on the outboard side of the patient floor corridor and in garage alcoves along the inboard side provide for an organized way to keep things handy, yet unobtrusive to patients and visitors.

Love how these designers have taken a fun, playful non hospital approach to designing this children hospital.

The vibrant colors used on each floor were chosen to appeal to children, teens, and the staff at Nemours Children's Hospital. Jonathan Hillyer/HillyerPhoto.com.
