The Wilhelmina Children’s Hospital is a top independent clinical hospital where seriously ill children are treated when other hospitals in the Netherlands are unable to properly treat them. The hospital is part of the University Medical Center Utrecht. Both buildings are connected by a tunnel. However, the Wilhelmina Children’s Hospital has its own identity and character.

When designing this complex, child friendliness was an important principle. The main hall was designed as if directly out of the imagination of a child with a tilted ice ceiling, a forest of slanting pillars that support a hanging garden. Adults are also treated in the hospital.

Located on the roof level of the central hall is the Ronald McDonald House, where families of ill children can retreat and just be with each other. In short, the Wilhelmina Children’s Hospital is a safe haven for the most vulnerable children, where professional care is offered in a warm environment, where even adults feel at home.
