Children’s Treatment Centres
DBF (Design Build Finance)
“The mission of ErinoakKids is to help children and youth with physical, developmental and communication disabilities achieve optimal levels of independence, learning, health and well-being.“ Vertechs Design created a series of non-traditional play spaces that can be accessed by children and youth, both patients and their siblings, while visiting the three new EOK centres. Treatment takes place outdoors in an inspiring setting which assists in motivating kids to achieve their individual goals.
A wheeling track where children can explore the capabilities of their new mobility aids wraps around a central play area which features areas for gross motor activity, sand and water play, therapeutic gardening, musical therapy, and contemplative spaces. A central courtyard at each facility is designed to be used by families while awaiting patients. Siblings and clients are challenged by the intricate rope climbing structures and fascinated by the spouting water feature.
