In origin, the hospitalized children were placed in an inner cradle without natural light. The intervention, with references to the advances of photobiology, improves this unfavorable situation by reorganizing the space. The large common room for hospitalization with seven care posts and two isolated boxes, spaces for nursing control and preparation of medication, are now oriented towards the Retiro Park.
Large skylights, starting from the vaulted windows, run throughout the room and fill the space with light. Thanks to this, the artificial light during the day is not necessary, except for very specific tasks. At dusk, the skylights remain the main element of light contribution to space, by containing LED lights with warm color temperature on the edges.
In the inner cradle, which is now connected to the outside one, there are four independent boxes with specific characteristics for isolation of positive-negative pressure. In addition, there are also all the supporting units, material, cleaning and preparation, as well as personnel area: nurses rest, medical work area and meeting room.
