Rural healthcare in China currently faces a multitude of challenges. Rural institutions are generally unfavourable compared to those in urban locales. Government subsidies and the raising of doctor and hospital incomes also lead to overcharging and needless treatments and exams. Commissioned by a Hong Kong charity, Institute for Integrated Rural Development, this project involves designing China’s first charitable hospital whilst helping foster a new attitude toward rural healthcare.

This project began with an interest in challenging the typical notion of the parking structure as an unappreciated infrastructural typology by transforming the new Eskenazi Hospital parking structure into a binary, synthetic terrain. The effect of a field of 7,000 angled metal panels in conjunction with an articulated east/west color strategy creates a dynamic façade system that offers observers a unique visual experience depending on their vantage point and the pace at which they are moving through the site.

The medicine Faculty completes the facilities on the Arrixaca Hospital grounds. The nature of the site and the brief give it a degree of independence from the rest of the precinct in both its use and character, eschewing the peculiar hospital image.
The project is understood as a neutral, compact, petrous box with four and two heights. Inwardly ‘projected void’ are used to tense the box and generate spaces in diverse scales and qualities. The vestibule space thus arises from the confrontation between two voids of a different nature, one measuring 15 x 15 x 15 m (interior) and the other 9 x 9 x 6 m (exterior) which compress and tense it vertically. The transition between the successive episodes: void (entrance space), vertical vestibule space and void (central patio), each one with its own properties, sets the main time and spatial theme of the project.
