SickKids Hospital had set a goal to design and oversee construction of a satellite Children's Clinic. A patient-centred design opened up the possibilities for a contemporary space that is intuitive, educational, interactive and fun. This space is designed for toddlers, young children and teenagers who visit with their parents and healthcare supervisors. Considering the perspectives of both children and young adults from a variety of cultural backgrounds, we have incorporated whimsical and playful installations into the environment, centering around the themes of 'nature' and 'play.' The graphic silhouettes and undulating landscape used throughout the corridors, medical rooms and reception are designed to encourage the pursuit of fun outdoors.


“Boomerang Health is fortunate to have a functional and beautiful space. Children and their families, happily congregate in the waiting area at the iPad bar or in one of the small sitting pods. The treatment rooms and gym areas are bright and welcoming, creating a positive and safe space for children and teenagers to focus on the task at the hand. We are grateful to Aaron Cheng and the team at C&Partners Architects for their thoughtful planning.”
— Meredith Johnson, Managing Director, Boomerang Health


A circular column in the reception area has been transformed into a tree, where children may write their name or draw a picture on the paper leaves. The variety of shapes, textures and colours allow for visual stimulation for children visiting the clinic. The overall aesthetic of the space allows young patients and adults to feel comfortable and at ease while in a medical setting.
