The concept for this project revolves around two central themes- (i) De-stressing experiential quality (ii) User centric approach to design. This has given rise to a building that is not only functionally sound but has low ecological footprint as well, while casting lowest possible ecological footprint. We had to design the Hospital in order to suit the functional requirements and ambience preferences of the core users, simultaneously complying with green building norms. All the materials are local materials. The façade is specially designed using ceramic pipes, bamboo, ceramic tiles. It has reduced need of exterior wall on all surfaces. The façade has given an ‘ICONIC’ identity to the building, in the respective area of its location. The central triple height courtyard not only connects all floors visually, but also enables hot air accumulated inside the building, during the day, to vent out.
The concept underlying for this project was to create an eco- friendly Hospital. We had to design the institute in order to suit the functional requirements and ambience preferences of the core users, simultaneously complying with green building norms. Thus this gave rise to a building that is very contemporary in use and has its own presence while accommodating and merging with the original site structures. The design makes use of big terraces that act as heat buffers and interaction points and plazas that are the centre of common activities makes the building active and live in its use.
The climatically responsive design approach has enabled a surface temperature reduction in peak summer, without use of any artificial energy, in hot dry climate, In the presented project, the strategic design of courtyard has resulted into an ‘open plan’. Courtyard has been and still continues to be, an important and integral element. Enhancing main road façade and have suitability for orthopedic.
The design is contextual to Banswada creating a brand image for cardiac – state of art
