Design: New Wave Architecture
On the understanding that life begins and generally ends in hospitals, architectural space of hospitals and health care facilities should make our journey through life more pleasant and bearable.
Rasht-Guilan, Province, Iran
Rasht is the largest city of Iran‘s Caspian sea coast. This area enjoys a climate known for its moderate, mild and Mediterranean – like along with heavy rainfall annually.
Project, Obstacles and Responses
A 17,400 sqm site in Goslar district of Rasht, provides an appropriate context for designing and constructing a General hospital of Rasht. Pars hospital is a 23,000 sqm design,occupied by 120 beds in line with latest international health care standards while it can be considerable care regional hospital under construction. Thebuilding is extended along east to west to be adopted with appropriate climatic direction in the context.
We-as designers- encountered a special project with functional complexity, special physical planning, approved criteria and codes, sophisticated medical equipment, economic issue, climatic and environmental condition such as high level of ground water and heavy rainfall during the year. Moreover, they all must be combined with an aesthetic aspect that is pleasant for patient, visitors and medical staff as our prime audience. On the other hand, a dynamic, innovative, warm, secure and reliablefunctional architecturalspacethat suited to present-day demands was desirable to heal, alleviate the pain, anxiety and emotional pressure.
Architecture & Design
In the Autumn of 2007, New wave Architecture‘s proposal was selected among others and delegated as designer of the project.
The project is trying to not only present responds to physical planning requirement and client‘s demands, but also approach to a unify form and leaves effective influence on this region of the city.Composing several blocks in three different height built on the basis of concrete structure features a comprehensive medical infrastructure. Moreover, being integrated via a transitive atrium that pervades and provides natural light accessibility in different departments, while porches create a subtle and interactive visual communication between inside and surrounding environment. We attempted to configure a new illustration of hospitals in minds and change the regular mentality of hospital in Iran.
The various departments including; laboratories, accident and emergency(A&E),acute care services, obstetrics and gynecology theater& IVF ,ICU,CCU, specialized clinics, pediatric &E.N.T wards, operating theater, Heli- pad and etc. constitute a modern and well-equipped hospital.
Consequently, high speed of modern movement and progressive medical sciences and equipment, accentuate the fundamental role of extension scheme in hospitals design. In this project it is considered to be located in the north, west of the site.
White Travertine stone and glass as the main material are applied in combination of wooden texture panels on the exterior walls as a sort of emblematic of vernacular architecture in Guilan .interior surfaces of departments will be covered by anti-bacterial homogeneous floor-covering, exclusively designed for health care facilities.
