We are delighted that Nickl & Partner achieved the second prize in the competition for the new Hengqin Hospital building.
The 110,000-square-metre project for a general hospital with 500 beds is being built in Zhuhai on China’s south coast.
The design proposes an assemblage of cubic volumes, some extending upwards, that accommodate examination and treatment areas as well as nursing wards and outpatient care. They rise above a curved plinth that houses the publicly accessible functions. It fits harmoniously into the lushly designed landscape of the site, which is divided into two areas by a watercourse.
The façade concept, which anticipates greening up to the highest floors, also represents a reference to the vegetation of the region.
This function has been disabled for Nickl & Partner.
