Yangfangdian Hospital / Hospital Replacement Facility


Location: Beijing, China

Size: 269,000 SF / 25,000 SM

Scope: Master Plan / Design

Yangfangdian is a replacement facility consisting of a 250-bed cardiac hospital. The hospital is on an extremely compact urban site requiring that a significant portion of the Diagnostic and Treatment Areas are located below grade. The above grade construction is dedicated primarily to entries, patient rooms, and outpatient clinics in two parallel east-west bars. These bars frame a landscaped entry court. Most patient rooms are south facing with views of the landscaped courtyard. Natural light is brought to the Diagnostic and Treatment Areas through a courtyard sunken two levels below grade. The Emergency Department is located on the ground level and the lower level. Radiology is located on the first level below grade with surgery and other Diagnostic and Treatment functions located on the second level below grade. Parking occupies the third and fourth levels below grade.
