长春中医药大学附属第三临床医院为新建三级甲等中医医院工程,位于吉林省长春市长春中医药大学园区东北角,总建筑面积83561m2,其中地上57966 m2,地下25595m2。平面布局为一字型六层裙房,上部东西设A、B两座塔楼;地上裙房设门诊部、急诊部、疗区住院部、体检中心、检验科等功能用房,本项目总病床数700床。

Located in the northeast corner of the university, the Third Affiliated Hospital of Changchun University of Chinese Medicine is a Grade III Class A hospital of traditional Chinese medicine. The building is structured by a 6-storey linear shaped podium with tower A and tower B on the east end and west end respectively, amounting to a gross floor area of 83561m2 including 57,966m2 aboveground and 25,595m2 underground. The podium floors accommodate multiple functions such as the outpatient department, the emergency department, the inpatient department, the physical exam center, the clinical laboratory, etc. In total, the new hospital has a bed capacity of 700.

The layout of the building is developed based on the terrain features. A triangular floor plan of the inpatient department maximizes the benefits of building orientation by putting all the wards south-facing, giving them sufficient sunlight access and campus view. Circulation hub and auxiliary rooms are placed on the side facing the arterial road to reduce traffic noise from the light rail.

The building is given an outer skin that emphasizes the vertical alternation between ribbon windows and aluminum panel curtain walls, which draws inspiration from the vertical texture of ancient Chinese bamboo slips. The choice of building materials, members and colors, characterized by simplicity, aims to create a modern, restrained and diverse image, which works in concert with the immediate environment and exemplifies the cultural traits of a traditional Chinese medicine hospital.

As for the façade, in addition to fulfilling the requirements of the internal space, it is hoped to establish a connection between the building and its urban and environmental settings through proper design and fine details, so that the building does not stand out as an isolated piece. The façade is not just an insulation layer, but more an honest reflection of internal functions and the most important medium for internal-external exchange.

details of the facade


On the west façade, the window orientation has been carefully adjusted to avoid western exposure to the sun while bringing the best sceneries into view, which is beneficial for rehabilitation and convalescence. In this way, the two inpatient departments have a visual connection despite the physical distance in-between. The windows are angled to avoid direct views of one another to protect privacy in the ward. On the north-facing façade, the wall area between windows is parallel to the light rail to achieve the maximum effect in reducing noise.

The people-oriented design philosophy is implemented throughout the entire design process in function settings, circulation planning, etc. The Hospital has now become a new urban landmark on the shore of Jingyue Lake.
