CUBA BUBA

Changing the atmosphere in Children’s hospitals

PROJECT IDEA

CUBA BUBA  are autonomous play centres for sick children. They are designed to immerse small patients in a friendly emotional environment.

 

The centres have been exclusively designed based on the unique idea of a Ukrainian philanthropist. Ukrainian architects oversee the construction and development. CUBA BUBA #1, #2, #3 designed by Valeriy and Katerina Kuznetsov. CUBA BUBA #4 designed by Daria Proviz.

These centres help children overcome psychological stress while they are undergoing medical treatment. Reducing stress has been found to greatly increase speed of recovery.
