A garden hospital by the sea.
Part of a multi-phase master plan to redevelop this 74-bed secondary hospital, the Phase 2 Expansion fundamentally transforms the hospital into a coherent and human-centric campus for healing. The new building is distinguished by its veranda concourse, which provides an exterior connection to the existing Phase 1 building and serves as the primary circulation armature of the hospital. Its upper levels veiled with custom ceramic block brise-soleil to provide patient privacy and filter the tropical sun, the concourse merges with the Phase 2 building and extends vertically to form a series of open-air lobbies for each floor. The resulting composition articulates a liminal zone of the campus, between the expansive beachfront and a more intimate garden experience at the center of the hospital complex.
