Green wall for Ahmedabad hospital
Ahmedabad-based Shailja Harish Design Studio has designed the Indovasc Hospital, which was to conceptualise a vascular surgery hospital that communicates their mission, culture and values.
Spread over 8133 sq. ft., the firm had to understand the need for quality medical care over business. A comfortable, home-like yet sophisticated environment was envisaged to engender mental peace, inner healing, hope and confidence among the patients, visitors and medical staff. Soft colors on the walls contrast with vibrant-coloured furniture and wall paintings. Artificial plants and more windows invite light and lend a natural look to the rooms.
Ocean-blue marble floors and elegant lighting add comfort to the waiting area with sofas laid out for the patients and companions. Natural Italian marble is used in the waiting room and consultation area, while a nature-inspired design enhances and promotes patient recovery. The setting is set to be therapeutic, radiate positive energy and reduce stress. The reception and waiting area on the first floor has a vertical garden and a series of lights, while there are motivational words in the consulting room to promote healing.
