National Heart Centre by Broadway Malyan

Project: National Heart Centre
Location: Singapore, Singapore
Designed by Broadway Malyan
Size: 35,000m²
The National Heart Centre is a competition winning entry for the first sustainable heart centre in South East Asia. Recognising the correlation between the healing properties of natural light and planting, the concept draws inspiration from the medicinal courtyard gardens of the past monasteries, from whence the term hospital (from the Latin hospes) originates.

A ground floor open plaza that permits social interaction and an ease of movement is supported by a further series of semi public open skygardens that allow natural daylight, ventilation, rest and recuperation for doctors, workers and visitors alike. These skygardens, in their social context, assist in healing society back to good health, whilst in their physical context assist in healing the built environment’s carbon sores. – from Broadway Malyan
