Juba General Hospital
Juba / South Sudan , Hospital, 2014
Allowing the building to spread out helps facilitate the design's most important element which is its functionality.
This structure is laid out to accommodate an easy pedestrian flow and vehicular circulation. The four story structure has several atriums that provide lots of natural lights. The incorporation of these interior open spaces helps loosen up the floor layouts by facilitating the flow of people throughout.
The center of the building is comprised of all the key elements of the general hospital functionality flanked on either side by the ER and the administration offices.
At the very top the building, above the restaurant and the staff rooms is the long term care units. It provides patients with a serene environment adequate for their recovery. Designed more like a studio apartment unit, it is meant to make patients feel at home away from their primary residences.
This sprawling element of architecture with different volumetric pieces and material expressions brings together most of needed services for healthcare as a general hospital to the people of south Sudan.
