SWA was responsible for whole design of first phase development and re-layout of Master Plan for the new National Hospital of Pediatrics in Hanoi. The full development is assumed to provide more than 900 beds for In-patient and Hi-tech facilities for medical treatments. The design takes its lead from the simple geometric forms of the original constructions on site, enhanced by spots of bold color in strategic areas to ease orientation for the end-user and connect the various buildings aesthetically. The buildings are grouped around a central courtyard incorporating covered links and a formally landscape courtyard.
The Modernist architectural language is intended to follow the scientific understanding of hygiene, where a clean light-colored aesthetic with functional wipe-clean surfaces and a minimum of ornamentation both externally and internally is the theme throughout the project.
The facility is intended to include today’s advancements in medicine and technology, in line with the needs of the patients and staff with clinical interiors associated with hospital architecture. The complex comprises a funeral home, 180-beds In-Patient facilities, an infectious decease block along with a separate technical building services block housing all prime medical and M&E equipments for full development.
The project also includes demolition work and alterations to existing structures on the premises.
