Maggie’s Centre in Oxford, England by WilkinsonEyre

Thursday, April 26th, 2018

Article source: WilkinsonEyre

Maggie’s is an innovative charity that provides emotional and practical support to anyone with cancer, helping them to take a more active and informed role in their treatment. Central to Maggie’s offering is making sure this care is provided in a stimulating and uplifting environment, with close proximity to nature. The charity takes great pride in commissioning forward-thinking architects, and asked Chris Wilkinson in 2006 to develop a design for its centre in Oxford. The Oxford Maggie’s Centre sits in the densely wooded boundary of the Churchill Hospital site.

Zaans Medical Centre in Zaandam, the Netherlands by Mecanoo

Thursday, March 1st, 2018

Article source: Mecanoo

Zaans Medical Centre is the first lean hospital in the Netherlands. It is an efficient and compact building in which professional healthcare and a personal approach strengthen each other. Architecture, urbanism, landscape and interior are brought together in a coherent design. Clear routing, an abundance of daylight, and positive distractions contribute to an environment that does not feel like a hospital, but as a place that promotes wellbeing.

Psychiatric Center in Navarra, Spain by VAILLO+IRIGARAY

Tuesday, January 16th, 2018

Article source: VAILLO+IRIGARAY 

The project is a reflection on memory: the pass of time and the evolution of architecture…

The proposal is a way to intervention in a 19th century building … the traces of the past are engraved in the new buildings, like a memory of ancient geometries … It is an unfinished architecture that the time will end up composing in the place …

Ambulance facility in Zeist, the Netherlands by Architectenforum

Thursday, November 2nd, 2017

Article source: Architectenforum

The ambulance station in Zeist is a sustainable design. The client asked for a nearly energy neutral building constructed with renewable materials.

The building is located on the outskirts of town, near the edge of a forest. The L-shaped plan is carefully positioned between existing trees. A large beech tree shades the 4 meter high window in the main staffroom. An ambulance post has no public function, patients will never enter this building. We decided to design no façade facing the road to the entrance of the nearby hospital. Instead green sloping walls rise from the ground and transform into in the curved line of the roof, blending in with the surrounding trees and the edge of the woodlands.

Woldyia Maternity Center in Ethiopia by Vilalta Arquitectura

Friday, September 8th, 2017

Article source: Vilalta Arquitectura

The project is located at the entrance of the hospital compound of the city of Woldya, in the north east of Ethiopia.

A key decision of the project was to divide it in two areas that share the same entrance space: the functional maternity unit and the mothers’ waiting area, a new program born as a result of the sociological analysis of the site. This is a space where future mothers coming from rural areas can live in an environment where they can feel comfortable two weeks before they give birth.

Healing Gardens for Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California by AHBE Landscape Architects

Tuesday, September 5th, 2017

Article source: v2com

AHBE Landscape Architects, an esteemed Los Angeles-based firm known for its expertise in designing thoughtful, evocative landscapes that allow for contemplation and reflection, has created a healing environment at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for patients, hospital staff, and visiting families and friends.

Unique solution transforms a concrete plaza into a restorative space in the city

The existing site consisted of a concrete plaza atop a multi-level garage. Using the metaphor of human skin, AHBE developed a multi-layered landscape solution that protects the existing building’s structural and mechanical integrity and accounts for an existing drainage system, emergency access, lighting and way finding, as well as extreme weather conditions. The solution – a unique, green roof-inspired system built onto the plaza’s existing structure – maximizes the impact of the landscape while minimizing construction and alterations to the existing building.

Plastic surgery practice in Rhodes, Greece by dARCHstudio

Friday, June 30th, 2017

Article source: dARCHstudio 

Since September 2015, the plastic surgery practice is located on the first floor of a class listed building, dating back to 1912, in the centre of Rhodes. Aiming to preserve and emphasize the new from within the old, the interior space was renovated with subtlety to be transformed into a contemporary, functional medical practice with all the necessary equipment but without losing its charm Italian-architecture characteristics. The practice is bisected by a wide airy corridor that houses the reception and lounge area, and ends in a sunny balcony at one end. From it branch the entrance, two offices, an operating room, a kitchen and a bathroom. The white color of the walls radiates a sense of cleanliness and sterility while simultaneously it stands in contrast to the colorful variety and the geometric patterns of the old floor tiles. A smooth and uniform cement mortar layer fills the voids of the floor, where the tiles are missing. All the furniture and the lighting, except for the office desks and chairs, is custom-made by the studio. The design of the furniture is inspired by the human anatomy, as well as by the important (for both architecture and plastic surgery) meaning of “section-incision”.
