Leicester Children's Hospital Wins Building Better Healthcare Award

← Back to news & insight

AFL Architect's East Midlands Congenital Heart Centre (EMCHC) project at Leicester Children's Hospital was recognised with another design award this week at the Building Better Healthcare Awards.

Considered the most credible national health awards, the ceremony is attended by professionals who are consistently raising the bar across the healthcare industry sector.

This award follows another top accolade at the Healthcare Estates IHEEM Awards in October.

"Designed to encapsulate fun, freedom, and imagination within the overall hospital brand of a rocket ship, specific areas have been created for children, adolescents, and families within a scheme that uses adjustable lighting, warm tones, and colourful artworks to create a very welcoming environment with integral wayfinding and discrete, but observable, seating spaces. We thought this was great."

The Best Interior Design Project (Refurbishment) award recognises an
outstanding internal space within a refurbishment project that enhances
the overall experience of patients, staff and visitors.

AFL's entry demonstrated how the vastly improved new spaces contributed to the ambitious, engaging and clear vision for children's healthcare services in the Leicester area.

The project has been variously praised for its concept, the quality of finish and the positive impact the design made on such a locally significant healthcare project. AFL Architects acted as architect, interior designer and design team leader for the project.

"To pick up this major award is astonishing. This project will have a massively positive impact on children and parents across the region, and we are so glad the judges recognised the combined effort to live up to this great responsibility. Thank you again to a fantastic client and team for making it all possible."
