Commissioned by the Nuova Armonia non-profit organization and 30 Ore per la Vita, the Roman studio Schiattarella Associati has created a project for the renovation of the Nephrology and Gastroenterology Department in the Pediatric Pavilion of Policlinico Umberto I in Rome.


The idea is to make kids feel protected in a new but at the same time familiar place. The spaces have been rationalized but also humanized, with the creation of a play area and a computer room, as well as advanced healthcare functions.


Natural light creates a cheerful atmosphere, thanks to large full-height glazings.


Each room features a color and a story, narrated with drawings and words on the windows. Color is everywhere: in the facings, the walls, the floors and furnishings, all developed to be functional for the various settings (play, rest, healthcare, hygiene, etc.).
