Inger Therese Hoff received her M.arch from the Oslo school of architecture and design in 2014, and since then, she has been working at NUNO arkitektur in Oslo.
Her life changed dramatically in 2017 when her beautiful daughter, Sonja Victoria, was diagnosed with leukemia at the age of 6 months. After spending years in the hospital at her daughter’s bedside, Inger Therese co-founded Sonja Victorias Stiftelse; a foundation advocating for the rights of children in hospitals. The mission of the foundation focuses on the design of hospital spaces for kids, and contends that these environments should not only facilitate medical treatment, but also secure life quality. This endeavor is rooted in feedback from the users and evidence-based design.
The foundation fights for children’s rights in the built environment, and is based in the belief that hospitals for children should support hope, play and normal life. Hospitals are spaces where kids and their families should be able to live, laugh and play.
