The hospital as conceived, meets the functional requirements of a high-tech medical facility while creating a healing and emotionally reassuring environment. The 130 bed hospital, exploits a number of environmental aspects and functions as a satellite hospital of the main hospital. It incorporates facilities like 3 operating theatres, blood bank, physiotherapy department, chemotherapy, dialysis, cath lab, ICU’s, OPD’s, dietary services and a healing garden.
The interiors are designed to international standards. Sophisticated materials such as glass and steel used in the building are a break-free of the distressing feel usually attached to the hospital.
The design is visualized in bright and soothing colors with the concept as “Nature”. This is achieved by using motifs of natural elements like birds, bamboo and flowers in the flooring, furniture and wall finishes that are easy to maintain.
Green building concepts are incorporated. The efficiency with which the building uses resources, energy, water, and materials while reducing building impacts on human health and the environment, through better design, construction, operation and maintenance, is increased.
Barrier free environment and accessibility design takes into consideration urban design (external environment), as well as, building design (internal environment).
The design principle comprises a variety of spaces for both solitary and group occupancy. Prevalence of green material is maximized. Hard landscape is minimized and plant materials dominate the gardens that encourage walking and help in reducing stress levels in patients.
The pristine interiors of the building compliment the urbane exteriors with use of glass and steel. The ambience created is spiritual and comfortable that alleviates the spirit of the patient. The planning, design and final architectural expression in the healthcare project is reflective of the gradual shift in outlook of healthcare institutions from merely treating the sick to a concerted approach to harness healthy living.
