At the Zayed Centre for Research into Rare Disease in Children, Stanton Williams reimagined the healthcare environment as a shared civic experience in the heart of London. Designed for Great Ormond Street Hospital and University College London, the 13,000sqm facility combines pioneering research with clinical care and is the first purpose-built paediatric centre of its kind in the world.
Facing Coram’s Fields - a site dedicated to children’s welfare for over 250 years – the building invites views into the 600sqm double-height laboratories and actively engages science with urban life.
