For the in-patient wards, several criteria had to be satisfied : provision of cross-
O
ventilation in every room; every bed to have a view of the outside; a minimum walking
L
distance from the nurses station to the rooms and also allowing a sense of visual
L
check; flexibility for the future so that any floor could be converted from wards to
O
rooms and vice-versa : as the floors progress, the configuration for the hierarchy of
D
the rooms to get established.
E
L The in-patient wards are grouped reassuringly around a central nurse's station and are
H placed above the clinical zone in the podium. Throughout the complex the aim has
I been to de-institutionalize the spaces by the use of bold, vibrant colours and patterns ,
thereby, creating a cheerful atmosphere and a feeling of home away from home.

N The concept for the OPD generated from the need to accommodate the people who
D would wait. while the departments have definite spaces for waiting, the general
R waiting area has an atrium with a directional visual communication.

E The less complex out-patient department is separated by a pedestrian atrium
L space from the complex acute care, diagnostic and in-patient areas. The large
H atrium serves to enliven the environment and provide a street-like atmosphere
I from within which the various facilities are accessed .

D For the medical facilities, the key-word was to have flexibility. Sandwiched between
R the in-patient wards and the clinical zone is an interstitial floor housing the
A engineering plants & services which support the complex medical facilities and the
P clinical zone below. The clinical zone consisting of the diagnostic and the 'acute-
R care' areas were placed with the operation theaters and housed within deep-
A spanned, podium floor, sitting atop a double basement housing the complex support
S zone consisting of the various services.
