Woman’s and Children’s Hospital
The brief was to replace both the existing Mother’s Hospital (RJMH) and the Children’s Hospital (RBHSC) with new facilities. Each hospital was designed so that certain clinical facilities in one hospital can provide vital support to certain clinical facilities in the other. These clinical linkages provided a complex puzzle and the solution provided a strong identity by crossing the sinusoidal glazed linkages with the main concourse running perpendicular.
Each hospital was designed as a separate entity with the common main hospital entrance serving both. This entrance was a multilevel concourse which solved the problem of the sloping site with the two approaches at different levels. The structure of the concourse roof comes down to the floor of the space, providing drama along its length.
