Something new here, in this perfect time I would like to review about a hospital architecture design, to be honest it’s a rare thing for me to post about hospital. After all I have reviewed about a home or building design because I love them very much, but I will try something new right now. Then give it a break guys!
Recently I have got the information about a hospital architecture design plan/proposal which called the Salzburg Regional Hospital Extension. This hospital plan is designed by the Atelier Thomas Pucher. As it name, this hospital will be located in Salzburg, Austria. This public service area is a large architecture which covers area for about 89, 000 square meters GFA. For the design plan which is carefully designed by the architect, the architecture is awarded as a 1st prize International Competition, it’s a ‘wow’, isn’t?
Then how it is come? By the architect, the architecture design will combines a “double-comb” structure which is accommodates the treatment and the examination rooms with a cross-shaped area, this area is dedicated for the ward and nursery departments. The architect distribution is completed by a final slab which host the laboratory and that integrates seamlessly the whole building.
The complex of building itself is delineated towards the train lines it is achieved by the slabs of the laboratory and the parking garage. These three elements merge into a very functional and yet peaceful structure that integrates perfectly into the surroundings. Based on my argument, the main key concept of the general design of the building is to guarantee the optimal performance. It is assuring the minimum distances between the functions and offering a clear overview of the structure and the organization of the building itself.
I think it’s also necessary to response to the requirements of the plot and its surroundings at the same time, and to the extreme complexity of a phased implementation. One of the main ideas is to integrate open green spaces throughout the building that would provide both natural light and a touch of nature.
Designed with the different sizes and textures, these “pocket parks” is offering a place for the quiet contemplation and relaxation for staff, patients and families. These green areas also are known to have therapeutic qualities, by boosting rehabilitation and the well-being of its users. The planning of extension of the Salzburg Regional Hospital has already started and the first phase of the project is due to be completed in first quarter of 2015.
Well, after all its sill plan, but if in 2015 this hospital is finished, then the people got the new impressive public space there. Ok guy’s I think it’s up. Have a nice day!
