The 200-bed hospital with added specialist clinic annex is located within an up-and-coming retail, upper middle class residential and business area in West Surabaya. In addition to the hospital facilities, the building also includes a major retail component due to its siting at the end of the retail corridor. It was clear that two separate drop-offs were needed to cater for the retail and hospital A&E.
Located along the North-South axis, the building is kept passively cool by orientating the short sides to face the hot morning and afternoon sun. Vertical screens with creeper plants form a green pattern along the long façade providing all patients in their wards with some form of greenery despite the concrete urban environment.
This project was designed in collaboration with Akitek Tenggara.
