This is not like that you imagine, this is not like a children playground in general, this is a holistic dreamland for young patients with psychiatric issues at the ‘Evangelisches Konigin Elisabeth Krankenhaus’ Hospital, in Berlin, Germany. Creative agency Dan Pearlman created “Elise Island” in cooperation with the hospital’s psychiatrists and doctors to develop a holistic approach to a new communication and spatial concept.
According to the Dan Pearlman:
The ‘Isle of Elise’ is based on a concept where design and architecture play a central role, thus forming a completely new approach to child and adolescent psychiatry.
Each room in the hospital was designed in terms of shape, colour, materials and light with the aim of promoting a positive atmosphere, empowering children’s imagination and positive emotions. The new concept meets the demands of young patients and therapeutical staff at the same time. The obligations of therapeutic professionals and the emotional needs of young patients are now balanced.
