Jiahui Yangpu Clinic

Shanghai | 2,400 sqm | 2017
The Jiahui Yangpu Clinic is a 2,400 sqm healthcare facility located on the first two floors of an existing building in Jiangwan City, Yangpu District in north east Shanghai. Jingwan City is a new, rapidly growing community with a young population and limited healthcare resources nearby. The establishment of the new clinic intends to reduce the pressure on district hospitals and provide international quality healthcare services to residents. A multi faceted design strategy is employed to produce salutogenic design in a relaxing clinical environment. The designers use the concept of ‘water’ under which to coordinate the other elements of the design strategy to create a soothing environment. This concept is coupled with the use of natural materials such as wood veneers while natural light and views outside are maximized for both patient and staff benefits.
