Shraddha Eye Hospital by Pomegranate Designs
Making its home in a new and improved premise in Vadodara’s bustling
Nizampura neighborhood, a 4000 sqft Shraddha Eye hospital seeks to
playfully reflect the image of colorful aesthetics, gradation of graphics and
highly functional spaces.
The clients for this project came up with a clear brief, a state-of-the-art hospital divided into four zones - consultation areas, waiting area, day-care or recovery rooms and operation rooms, Designers deliberately aimed to toy with interesting graphics, classic color combinations, and precise lightings throughout these divisions to club these zones into one wholesome unit working in perfect sync with each other.
While explaining the design approach, the principal designers of the project added, "We placed a central waiting area and wrapped it around with all the consultation, OPDs and optometric rooms. A strategically placed reception
table in the waiting area becomes functional every time a patient walks in
through the well-lit entrance gangway and is further directed to the concerned
zone. For a quiet and secluded OT and day care zone, facilitating speedy recovery of patients, we assigned external periphery to these facilities. Ergonomically designed passages, waiting spaces and OT area provide the perfect backdrop for a successful functioning of the hospital. The awkward shape of the building layout, low ceiling height, air conditioning ducts, functional requirement of wider passages, and requirement of other supporting services added to our design challenges."
The material palette for the hospital interiors was kept minimal. Dual-color gradation cutwork offers a perfect backdrop for a very busy yet playful waiting area. A large double glass window façade helps in maintaining low decibels from the busy road outside while keeping the areas well lit naturally. Ergonomically designed passages, waiting spaces, and OT area provide the perfect backdrop for the successful functioning of the hospital.
"Success of any healthcare facility these days depends upon various factors involving its aesthetic appearance, fire safety standards, MEP services, equipment technology & placement, along with comfort factor in terms of interiors. All the above aspects were put together to create a fine orderliness in our interior design. Large double glass window façade helps in maintaining low decibels from the busy road outside & keeping the areas well-lit naturally. Use of contemporary materials such as glass, HDF, polyurethane paints, composite stone, Natural stone, etc. adds on to the modern-day image of the hospital." explained Samir Kulkarni.
