A secret Lullaby Factory – nope it’s not a movie, it’s what one children’s hospital is doing to lift the spirits of its young patients!
Finding yourself as a hospital patient is no fun, being in a strange bed, in a strange room and an endless stream of strangers (albeit friendly and caring) in and out of your room can make for a miserable situation. Of course children’s hospitals usually cater extremely well in entertaining young children, but I love that this hospital has gone the extra mile.
London’s Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital has installed a magnificent and seemingly magical Lullaby Factory into an otherwise eyesore of a courtyard that is doing an amazing job of cheering up and calming young patients by delivering sweet sounding harmonies to their ears. The Lullaby Factory was cleverly designed by Studio Weave to fill an awkward space between buildings and conceal unsightly pipe work – what a wonderful achievement!
