Childrens Hospital, Shanghai

Childrens Hospital, Shanghai

A Chinese property developer has commissioned KSP Jürgen Engel Architekten International with designing a children’s hospital as part of the ‘Shanghai New Hongqiao International Medical City’. The Chinese State and the City of Shanghai provide the funding for the development of this medical care center. In cooperation with the Fudan University a children’s hospital will be realized, that will offer a comprehensive range of medical services that will meet the growing need for modern high-quality medical care. The building is structured as a three-storey podium and a two-storey block of approx. 90 meters long that houses the 100 patients’ rooms (the ward block). The podium accommodates all of the medical facilities. Located between the podium and the ward block, the administration level serves to separate the two areas visually. The architectural design concept specifies the use of friendly, warm and natural colors. On the inside of the building the colors serve to designate important points of contact (such as information points), on the outside they form part of the façade design.
