Common hospitals are usually located in large buildings, but their rooms are usually small. Consequently, most rooms have no windows and are separated from the outside. If we define “health” as the recovery of the natural state the current design of hospitals, separates man from nature, Is ironically the opposite of the original function of a hospital.
Recently opened, the Kangbuk Samsung Hospital Total Healthcare Center was designed to improve existing architectural issues in hospitals. To achieve this goal requires that the hospital is more like a hotel or resort. This by introduction of various aspects of natural elements water, land, trees, wind in the numerous public spaces, lobby, reception and other areas.
The first area that patients know when they visit the health center is the lobby. Here water is introduced as a device “reification” and introducing natural light as much as possible, using glass stairs existing. This light is reflected back through the pool hall that is located under the stairs.
Another natural element used is a bubble panel, making something invisible wind visible in the form of bubbles. With this, divide the spaces between the lobby and reception, creating a transition area. Patients enter the hospital area of water entering the wall panel bubbles.
