What does a children's hospital entail? How can an environment designed for the treatment of children, a place where no child wishes to be, still offer a sense of comfort? These were pivotal questions driving the design process. The edifice emanates a sense of 'optimism' and warmth, echoing the core mission of the Princess Máxima Center. Moreover, the architectural layout is child-centric: proportions are tailored to suit children's dimensions, and the color scheme is carefully chosen to positively impact the well-being of young patients. The fundamental aim was to cultivate a 'home' environment where they could fully embrace their childhood.
