Medical Centre Moscow
A respectful Medical Centre in an oak grove surrounding an historical villa
The new Medical Centre in Moscow will be situated on the grounds of an historically significant villa surrounded by a grove of oak trees.
Dutch Hospital Design’s design solution was on the one hand to provide a respectful architectural treatment towards the historical mansion and on the other hand to retain as much of the existing oak trees as possible. This was achieved by creating a U-shaped form with a modest façade which embraces the monumental villa. The narrow 16m building block width allows for plentiful daylight penetration and views into the surrounding landscape. Many oak trees are preserved by placing the majority of parking underground. Only essential parking bays for taxi’s and ambulances are located on the surface .
The façade of the new medical centre is composed of vertical fins with a wave effect that is inspired by the veination of leaves or blood vessels: a subtle reference to the function of the building. In contrast with this, the main entrance façade is accentuated by a light natural stone cladding making it easier to find.
The new medical centre will have a gross floor area of around 12.000m² with 4 operating rooms and 30beds.
