Weihai Hospital Medical Building by GLA-Design

Home > Winners > #81023


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Weihai Hospital

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Medical Building

INSPIRATION:
Facing the status of the popular use of Chinese elements as a style of architecture or decoration as well as the strong and clear requirements of building in traditional style of the proprietor, the architect made an agreement with the proprietor on "imitating but not copying from the traditional style". Besides, this decision of the hospital project provides us a chance to look into some contemporary expression of traditional courtyard in northern China.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The project is situated in a coastal pinus thunbergii forest in the East New Town of Weihai near the sea, which covers a total construction area of around 8000m2. The hospital, as a comprehensive health care facility, enjoys three main parts: programme exhibition centre of the East New Town, Kangyang Yile Sanatorium and Medical Care Houses.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Facing the status of the popular use of Chinese elements as a style of architecture or decoration as well as the strong and clear requirements of building in traditional Chinese style of the proprietor, the architect made an agreement with the proprietor on "imitating but not copying from the traditional style". Besides, this decision of the hospital project provides us a chance to look into some contemporary expression of traditional courtyard in northern China.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started is 2016 and finished in 2018. It is situated in a coastal pinus thunbergii forest in the East New Town of Weihai near the sea. The detailed address of the project is Hudong Road,Huancui District, Weihai,ShanDong, CHINA.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
1. Wall stone:Portuguese white sandstone 2. Roof: Al-Mn-Mg 3. Glass: European gray glass. The main body of the construction presents an inverted "Y" shape by using the combination of traditional flush gable roofs, double slope tops and few gable and hip roofs. The material of the roof is aluminum-magnesium-manganese plank, smooth and neat. The construction of the facade lays stress on the interlacing of vertically divide lines, white walls, vertical landing window and vertical wooden color metal grille. The structure simplifies the double-deck building and casts a true-or-false reflection with the walls made of pure stones.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Gross Built Area (square meters): 7980㎡

TAGS:
Contemporary Translation, Chinese Style Courtyard, modern materials, temporary craft-work

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Final decision has made on inheriting the essence structure of Chinese style courtyard by using its scale and form based on a research on an array of traditional cases. However, the modern styles of choosing building materials, building details and construction realized the seeking of the balance between the experiential value of the place and the feature of the times. The new style architecture is not a stacking of traditional elements, but a combination of modern elements and traditional elements based on the understanding of the latter. The new style creates buildings with traditional charm based on the modern aesthetic view. The low-rise style courtyard tucks away in the large pinus thunbergii forest. The combination of traditional courtyards, Chinese style, modern materials and temporary craftwork is an understanding and development of traditional courtyard style and scale as well as a temporary translation and reconstruction of traditional architecture style.

CHALLENGE:
The original site of the hospital is an area of bungalows, long fallen into disrepair. The decision of choosing this site aims at preserving the surrounding pinus thunbergii forest to the utmose. Facing the status of the popular use of Chinese elements as a style of architecture or decoration as well as the strong and clear requirements of building in traditional Chinese style of the proprietor,the architect try to look into some contemporary expression of traditional courtyard in northern China.
