Local practice Ater Architects curate the interior of 'Doctor U' -- a children's clinic based in Kiev, Ukraine. As health facilities can be extremely stressful spaces both for kids and their worried parents, the firm searched for ways of alleviating these anxieties through design. Ater Architects is transparent with its intentions of creating "an atypical atmosphere for the medical institution" which will not arise negative feelings and will perhaps motivate visits to the doctor later in life.
The Doctor U facility features a strong contemporary approach to interior design. The aesthetic relies on the juxtaposition between minimalist forms and incredibly bold colorways -- a good example of this would be the royal blue sofa in the waiting room and the terrazzo-accentuated wall decor.
