We want in particular to congratulate to Cristiana Caira and White Arkitekter for the CNETO Award – BEST PROJECT – 2023, with the following motivation:
The winning project is the Queen Silvia Children’s hospital, developed by the White Arkitekter design team coordinated by the arch. Cristiana Caira. In fact, on behalf of Västfastigheter, White Arkitekter designed a pioneering hospital: in the project, the space for play is constant throughout the building and the identification with the child’s perspectives, as it was possible to observe during the last CNETO tour, played an essential role in the planning and design process.
The current hospital campus, where the pediatric hospital is located, is characterized by healthcare architectures built in the 1970s, and the new intervention stands out for its innovation. It corresponds to the first step which will involve the renewal of the entire medical campus in Gothenburg, with the reorganization of accesses, flows and routes that will respond to future needs.
The winning project is fully responds to the activities carried out and promoted by CNETO for the design solutions and sustainability strategies adopted by the project team.
