300-bed Hospital
New Delhi
Exterior Design

Type: Healthcare
Size: 400,000 sf
Completion: 2017

A new 300-bed Medcity is being planned in New Delhi by a leading Healthcare provider.

The planning of the building facilitates easy movement of patients and medical staff. The lower floors have public facilities such as Lobby, Cafeteria, OPD and Diagnostics. The middle floors are primarily patient rooms. The upper floors are critical care and the top floor is Hospital administration.

The Fa├žade is designed such that there is maximum daylight into the public spaces on the lower floors and the top administrative floor. This transparency creates a lighter feel to the building and extends from the lower 2 floors to the top floor. The middle floors, primarily driven by the hospital function on the interiors have punched openings. The plumbing shaft located on the exterior has louvers with the opening size blending with the adjoining windows.

The stairs visible from the main road has terracotta panels cladding in 2 natural colors that resonates with the existing buildings at the site and provides an iconic feature to the building.
