The America for Bulgaria Foundation has once again tapped Lee Skolnick Architecture and Design Partnership’s interior exhibit design and graphic design expertise to re-imagine Pirogov Children’s Hospital in Sofia. Working in partnership with IKEA to select homey, modern, child-friendly furniture, LHSA+DP has completely renovated the hospital into a welcoming environment.
“We’re announcing Little Heroes at Muzeiko, ABF’s science center for children because we will bring the colorful visual language from Muzeiko to Pirogov. And Muzeiko’s architect and designer, Lee Skolnick, is working with our Bulgarian team to execute a child-friendly, colorful and healing vision for Pirogov Children’s Hospital," said Nancy Schiller, CEO of America for Bulgaria Foundation.
Featuring the theme of "Little Heroes," Pirogov Children’s Hospital aims to create a comfortable and therapeutic environment for children and their families. Incorporating colorful motifs, Evidence Based Design, captivating educational components and kid-friendly play spaces, this hospital renovation brings Pirogov Children’s Hospital into the 21st century, where it will be on par with, and set an example for contemporary children’s hospital design in Bulgaria and worldwide.
“All human beings learn through stories. That’s how I see architecture–our job is to help people understand and live beneficially. Creating a narrative from which to work ensures that people connect with the values and messages that characterize an environment,” remarked Lee Skolnick, FAIA, principal at LHSA+DP.
