GOSH's Sight and Sound Centre scoops Euro Design Award
16 Jun 2022, 9:24 a.m.
Great Ormond Street Hospital's (GOSH) Sight and Sound Centre has won a prestigious European Healthcare Design Award in the healthcare design category and was highly commended in the art and interior design category.
The Centre was designed with children and young people with sensory loss and includes a sensory garden with plants that children can see, touch, smell and hear. Bespoke and engaging artworks especially commissioned for children with sensory loss feature in the new centre alongside state-of-the-art clinical facilities such as soundproofed booths for hearing tests, an eye imaging suite, a dispensing opticians and other testing facilities. The centre opened in June 2021 and was supported by Premier Inn.
It is fantastic that our new centre has been recognised in these awards. It is testament to the work of everyone involved in the project, including the children and young people involved in developing the designs. We hope that the Centre makes coming to hospital a little bit easier, taking away some of the challenges or worries children may face."
