Following an eight-week international design competition, we are thrilled to announce we have been selected for the planning and design of a new hospital to be located in Changsha, the largest city in the Hunan Province of China.
The Fifth XiangYa Hospital will provide a new world class model for the delivery of healthcare in an integrated, efficient and uplifting environment. The Hospital is a campus, consisting of a series of interconnected structures, organized in two main groups — the General Hospital and the VIP Hospital — that surround a special central Healing Garden, axially aligned with the Xianguling Park.
The Healing Garden at the heart of the project provides a unique personality to the campus, a clear identity to the front door, and an inviting and relaxing outdoor amenity in direct contact with nature for all.
Each half of the campus is organized around a central concourse, along which all the clinical functions are organized. The meandering inpatient towers hover above it. Two levels of service functions and parking provide the operational base below ground.
The hospital will be easily accessible and will establish a vibrant engagement with the surrounding community. Its civic and physical presence in Tianxin will be strong but friendly, a proud anchor of the community and the region. The entire campus is accessible to the city and the neighbors, who can circulate around and through it along the Emerald Necklace, a network of paths at different elevations, linking the city to Xianguling Park.
