The Lullaby Factory is a fantasy landscape reaching 10 storeys in height and 32 metres in length, designed to engage the imagination of everyone, from patients and parents to hospital staff, by providing an interesting and curious world to peer out onto.
We won the competition for an intervention within an awkward interstitial space at Great Ormond Street Hospital with our proposal for a Lullaby Factory. Due to phased redevelopment, the MSCB building has been designed to overlook a landscape that will not be in place for 15 years. In the intervening period, large windows look directly onto the old Southwood Building with the gap between less than one metre in places.
Rather than covering up the oddities, we have re-imagined the Southwood facade, with its copious pipes and plant, as the best version of itself; and rather than hiding what is difficult, created something unique and site-specific. Our proposal consists of two complementary elements; the physical factory that appears to carry out the imaginary processes involved in delivering lullabies; and the soundscape, which is being recorded especially for the project by composer Jessica Curry.
