The project transforms the 800 m2 pre-existing rooftop at the 12 de Octubre Hospital in Madrid, Spain (where 7,000 children are hospitalised every year) into a playspace surrounded by ornamental trees and plants.The design was inspired by the children’s drawings, which illustrated their ideal playspace. Thinking as children we realised that every element in the garden becomes a potential play element.

We felt that the space had to be more than just a playspace – it had to feel unique for the children, their own, a secret place, a landscape able to empower their imagination, a place where they could dream, where their senses would delight in contact with nature. And, on top of that, it should bear no resemblance to the hospital, but instead create a variety of atmospheres through landscape design.

The design provides differently-sized circular areas, surrounded by trees and plants, variously focusing on playing and nature.The project, which was completed and officially inaugurated on May 2015, enables the children inpatients to perform not just a physical activity, but to find entertainment, social interaction, evasion and joy, hopefully providing them with therapeutic benefits during treatment and recovery.
