The pediatric hospice in Sulaibikhat Bay overlooks a nature reserve in close proximity to the Arabian Gulf and the Sabah Medical Centre. Respite accommodation attempts to re-create a familiar environment of Kuwaiti seaside chalets for patients. Facilities are surrounded by landscaped play areas and include clinics, a hydrotherapy pool, school, auditorium, library, play areas and a mosque. Much attention has been paid to creating a child-friendly interior to the buildings, including desert animal motifs on walls, cocoon hideouts in play areas, star-optic lights over patient’s beds and miniature doors. Buildings are designed as reinforced concrete structures clad with aluminium panels in primary colours.
