Anchored in the principle of “a hospital within a garden, a garden within a hospital,” this design for this new medical centre marries a strong, inviting organic form with operational efficiency. The plan provides for a future 100-bed new hospital with related diagnostic, trauma and surgical in and out patient services. Design details are drawn from Singapore’s unique culture and distinctive style.
The building is made up of five standardized nine by nine metre structural grid building orientated towards the lake, each separated by garden courtyards. The entire building is sheltered by an undulating canopy, with openings above the courtyards, providing shade in the sub-tropic environment.
