Lullaby Factory, Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children - www.studioweave.com Studio Weave has transformed an awkward exterior space landlocked by buildings into the Lullaby Factory – a secret world that cannot be seen except from inside the hospital and cannot be heard by the naked ear, only by tuning in to its radio frequency or from a few special listening pipes.
<p>We have designed a fantasy landscape reaching ten storeys in height and 32 metres in length, which can engage the imagination of everyone, from patients and parents to hospital staff, by providing an interesting and curious world to peer out onto. Aesthetically the Lullaby Factory is a mix of an exciting and romantic vision of industry, and the highly crafted beauty and complexity of musical instruments.</p>
This project by London based architecture firm Studio Weave is truly inspirational. Situated in the dead space of a children's hospital, Studio Weave used existing pipe work to create a labyrinth of tubes that play a continuous lullaby, only heard through a radio frequency from within the hospital. Known as the Lullaby Factory, this is a beautiful concept.
