Because Ideas Can Be Hot And Cold


Policlinico of Catania, Italy

Winner of the "LAD-PROJECT", organised by the Lad Onlus not for profit organization and the Foundation of the Association of Architects of the Province of Catania, for the requalification and upgrading of the operating unit for pediatric hematology and oncology of the University Hospital of Catania. With this intervention, the architects aim to contribute to the young patients wellbeing and reduce the psychological effects of the problems they are facing. The idea behind the project is based on the choice of "projecting out" the department and "projecting in" the external space of the hall, to eliminate as far as possible the physical boundaries between the two environments.
CEADESIGN contributed to this farseeing requalification project with its products. The choice of the taps by CEA, in AISI 316/L stainless steel, installed at the children level, ensures hygiene and total non-toxicity, thanks to the antibacterial properties of the material.
