NELSON MANDEL CHILDRENS HOSPITAL
The Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital was developed with landscape architecture as a large contributing factor in the design. Spaces that were designed for occupational therapy and children’s play encouraging the use of outdoor spaces as part of recovery.
We supplied a combination of lighting elements that added to the overall aesthetic design style envisioned by GREENinc Landscape Architects who were the landscape designers. .
The various hospital functions are arranged around 5 internal landscaped courtyards. The courtyards are grouped into Active & Passive Healing Courtyards with each design determined by its relationship with the surrounding hospital function.
The Arrival Court, Visitor & Children’s Garden are welcoming spaces that overlook a circular pond, connected to the Children’s Garden with a narrow water channel shaded by a Pergola. The Pergula is lit with the Sputnik trunion mounted 30W 3000K. The surrounding barrier walls in the courtyard feature the Lotis.
The active & passive courtyard gardens feature the Piazza Bollards Bollard 9W 4000k & Pathway LED as well as the Sputnik to accentuate walkways, trees & playsets.
We are pleased to have been a part of this incredible project through GREENinc Landscape Architects.
