The reproduction of the landscape garden in the city is the conceptual conception of the beginning of the design of Shaoxing Hospital. The design hopes that the new space form can not only meet the space requirements of the hospital in the new era, but also integrate into the small-scale urban cultural context of Shaoxing ancient city, while providing people with more possibilities to play and rest in the form of garden in addition to seeing a doctor, and enhance the vitality of the community.
The old streets, mottled walls, walking through the ancient city block with varied scenery, encounter the landscape garden hidden in the city, and the history hidden in the years will appear in front of you.
Shaoxing Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital is located in the ancient city of Shaoxing, with a total construction area of about 100,000 square meters. The whole hospital is divided into east, middle and west three parts: the east central area is the reconstruction building, and the west area is the expansion building. Around the central landscape garden, the design constructs a wandering courtyard flow line, and the building volumes with different functional requirements form streets, inner yards and squares between each other, creating a pleasant scale of the city atmosphere.
Respecting the regional nature of the ancient city of Shaoxing, we hope that Shaoxing Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine inherits the historical context, has the modern medical function, but does not lose the Jiangnan temperament. With landscape garden as the core, the design links various spatial elements, and builds the garden between the streets, changing the inherent impression of the hospital's seriousness and cold, and adding the aspiration of landscape artistic conception.
The form and style of the old city block are the inspiration elements of the design. Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital adopts the settlement layout, the charm of the Chinese slope roof, with fresh and elegant facade tones, both modern and traditional, and the style of the neighborhood. The street-like spatial pattern, together with the core landscape garden, forms a circular circulation network, shaping a unique courtyard system space. Through the coordination of different functions through the varied spatial combination, the hospital forms an efficient diagnosis and treatment process, and the modern management mode is combined with the landscape garden, adding some strong humanistic pleasant feeling to the hospital.
Surrounding the center of the landscape garden, the building is set with eaves and water, the landscape gallery with appropriate twists and turns, four hours into the scene, people walk in the garden, such as in the middle of the painting. The inner court and the side garden are scattered between various areas, creating a space experience like a garden, so that doctors and patients can enjoy a comfortable environment and a healing atmosphere. Combined with the Chinese landscape corridor, the inner courtyard side garden is designed as a medicinal plant, a square inch place, its own autumn. Cui Dai Yin red, always all things xing, the eye can reach, everywhere the rhyme of nature.
Over thousands of years of medicine, Shaoxing traditional Chinese medicine culture has created countless legends. Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital is rooted in the ancient city of Shaoxing, and the relationship between the two needs to be re-examined and re-shaped at present. In our design concept, Shaoxing Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine is not limited to medical functions, but an open and experiential traditional Chinese medicine cultural block, which integrates medical law, medicinal food display and traditional Chinese medicine cultural education, and develops more medical culture in multiple dimensions.
Open up to the city and become a new routine of community life. We planned a traditional Chinese medicine cultural street on the west side of the site, which has a direct dialogue with the surrounding city streets. Combined with the low wall and the courtyard corridor, the cultural street sets up important specimen display, propagandizes the culture of Chinese medicine, and creates a strong flavor of Chinese medicine. The surrounding citizens can experience the consultation of Chinese medicine and feel the pulse here, enjoy the influence of Chinese medicine culture, and under the rich infiltration of Yue medicine culture, the ancient city's heritage can be modernized.
The vitality of the ancient city is involved in the landscape of the hospital of traditional Chinese medicine. While coordinating the traditional style, the hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine reinterprets the modern architectural vocabulary to form a rich and diversified ecology. Walking in the cultural street, walking in the landscape park, all aspects of the life scene gradually unfolded, changing and vivid, so that people have a life experience full of details of the more medical culture.
Located in the thick historical sense of the ancient city, Shaoxing Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine has special humanistic significance. After the hospital was put into operation, we found that more and more people would visit the hospital on foot and pay less attention to its inherent medical properties. The hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine is integrated into the texture of the site, cleverly integrating the surrounding elements, and becoming a key activity node in the block. As a public space, in addition to the necessary functions, the hospital of traditional Chinese medicine is more important to create an atmosphere: hidden in the city and integrated into the city, with an open and inclusive attitude, facing the future of the ancient city.
