Major props to British design studio Two Create, the geniuses behind the newly revamped cancer ward at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, England. Bright, bold, and decidedly non-depressing, the new space, which will house 12 teenage patients, is meant to resemble a cool boutique hotel, replete with Vitra furniture, iPod docks, stylish sofas, metallic paints, huge flat-screen TVs by every bed, and well-designed communal hang-out areas. Design in the name of making things just a wee bit sunnier? Something we can definitely get behind. View additional photos over at Co.Design.
