Master plan for the construction of a new multifunctional medical center.
The exemplary new medical center in the north of St. Petersburg will meet the latest medical standards for central Europe, ensuring that the surrounding region and country can provide its military and civilian populations with quality medical care. The plan also includes buildings for research and teaching, as well as student and staff accommodations on this site with its convenient transport links – close to the KAD (St. Petersburg ring road) and Primorskoye shosse, within the Gorskaya recreation area.
In the northern part of this area, the new hospital and medical center form a single functional unit. A generous green arterial pathway connects all areas and defines the transitions between the different departments. The complex is approached from a central square, through which a boulevard links the residential area to the east with the research and teaching campus to the west.
The campus for research and teaching forms the heart of the medical center. It is where a lively exchange of scientific knowledge between medical research, teaching and health care will take place. The Medical University here will become a center for teaching on an international level, and will be a prestigious centre for medical research and education. On the campus proper, two basic types of buildings will differentiate the teaching and research facilities – they will be accorded different tasks which will be structurally recognisable on the outside.
Top priority will be to realise a state-of-the-art, future-oriented clinical facility located in a generous, integrated yet flexible building structure that ensures the right operational and physical infrastructure to go along with it, that is able to capitalise on innovation potential in the future, fosters interaction and realises synergies. The Multifunctional Medical Center will establish itself as a location of interdisciplinary research with international appeal that will attract researchers and teachers and in this way allow the creation of world-renowned teams.
