场地解读 | Site Interruption
The project is located at Panzhou, Guizhou Province. The planned construction area is around 144 mu. As the site is far away from the downtown, and surrounding urban facilities are insufficient.The square paved with hardened cement was only severed as a parking lot. It’s a flat rectangle. From the municipal road to the square is only one walkway away. Noise and exhaust fumes filled the field.

We envisage that, through the design method of landscape natural creation, the site will be open, active, ecological, and healthy, and the scenes that are naturally born will be returned to the venue. It conveys the message of human care and conflict resolution, which is both a practical place to encourage dialogue and social intimacy, and a healing space to help patients recover. Considering site’s functional properties and the project schedule, the hospital’s landscape will be constructed by two phases. Objective of the first and the second phase is a square in front of the multi-functional building and a center garden in front of the inpatient department building, respectively. Not only to satisfy the requirements of different people, we also take the rehabilitation function of green space into consideration. Key functions such as recuperation, meditation, rehabilitation and entertainment are planned throughout the area.

设计理念 | Design Concept
The curve has a transcendent power and gentleness that evokes the inner gentle feelings and infinite thoughts. In the design, the curve becomes the image leader. It integrates, divides, organizes the space, and forms a connection with the surrounding environment rather than conflicting with each other. Through the design methods of extension, overlap and reciprocation, the relationship between waterscape, landscape wall, green island, big tree and municipal road is combed to form a harmonious interface bite and efficient streamline guidance.

The garden design concept comes from the process of cell division. We are inspired by these basic elements of life and incorporate the concepts into the landscape design. We try to provide a peaceful and quiet environment for patients and to promote union between people and nature,to make man get power from the living. By this way, patients can gain more confidence on their convalescence. The square design concept comes from the metamorphosis of a butterfly, which is the symbol of happiness. Through the transformation from an old image to a modern one, the old hospital is revitalized and filled with modernity. As a carrier of a precious historical memory, the hospital can achieve another giant leap following the thorough transformation.

设计解读 | Design Interruption
Considering the particularity of the site, ambulances are the only allowed vehicles to pass through. The car route and the pedestrian route operate independently to ensure the efficiency and safety of the traffic system. The linear extension of the ground cover with green belt can effectively guide different functional sections. As the fastest and most convenient route, the barrier-free green passage to the emergency entrance area gains particular emphasis during the design stage.

With the curved linear design, the green island can effectively isolate the dust and noise from the municipal road and can support an upper space for the pedestrian path to create a comfortable under-forest environment for passengers. The spring water, the flower bridge, and the arbor forest make the originally flat and open space rich and diverse. While enhancing the joy of the space, the green island consolidates the relationship between people and the surrounding, which provides an outdoor leisure space for medical staff, patients and their families.

The area in front of the multi-functional building serves as the most crowed public space for social contact. As a main landscape node, the central interactive waterscape is arranged in a safe and welcoming environment to meet the crowds’ need in communication, interaction and wellness treatment. The curved flower pool benches provide rest places for crowds. The gentle curve reduces space distance between people and promote communications.

Light source should be selected according to the skin texture of the building. Lights should be in a proper arrangement to avoid light pollution. Warm and soft point light source project a safe and comfortable to light up the environment, which creates a relaxing visiting atmosphere, helps to lighten up patients, improves somatosensory comfort and relieves fatigue of medical staff.
结语 | Ending
With the joint efforts by many parties for communication and cooperation, the first phase of construction and landscape has been basically completed. With the gradual completion of the project, it has become a place to provide emotional, social and practical support for patients. It is like an open park to everyone to improve people’s emotional discomfort and maximize relaxation and healing effects. The professionals here can provide help for people who need.
