International Interior Design Award, The Royal Children’s Hospital, Melbourne

Melbourne’s new $1 billion (Aus) Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH),  unveiled by Queen Elizabeth II was designed by joint venture between Billard Leece Partnership and Bates Smart Architects (BLBS), with US-based HKS as international advisors. The RCH received the ‘International Interior Design Award’ at the 2012 Emirates Glass LEAF Awards, which took place during this year’s London Design Festival. RCH is based on state-of-the-art ideas developed by the hospital around a family centred care model that puts children and their families at the centre of the facility. Using innovative and evidence-based design principles, the RCH reflects changing healthcare practices, workplace patterns, user expectations, community aspirations and environmental responsibility.
