Rainbow Children's Village
The Rainbow Children’s Village provides a restorative home where patients can be monitored and recuperate after receiving treatment. Our solution is to create a home that provides a tranquil, clean environment to shelter both the patient and their caregiver during and after treatment. RCV provides a holistic healing approach which includes a recreational are and qualified staff to monitor the children. The shelter when completed will house over 27 twin-bedded rooms plus additional facilities of communal living, entertainment space, state of the art kitchen, laundry and office space.
The overall architectural design takes inspiration from the Rainbow theme in a series of semicircular structures that aim to create sheltered central spaces for the children to play while concentrating services. The structures are brightly coloured bringing joy to the children and reminding them of the rainbow colours. The windows and roofs also jump around to different heights breaking up the building and creating a fun place for the paediatric patients. The overall design idea was to improve the health care through a series of building interventions that would lighten the mood while at the same time providing a protected place to rest and recover.
