The concept while designing this 40-bed set up was very clear. Healing happens inside hospitals and the space itself should participate in that healing process. Keeping this in mind the main purpose was to approach the design with a holistic and rarefied thought process.
One of the main functions that Axis hospital had to satiate was to make the patients feel secure and calm, the feeling of a home away from home. An open-plan area which allowed for more air and light flow was adopted. It also proved to be a smart option in the final run as it allowed for more adaptable spaces depending on the need required to be fulfilled at any given point of time. E.g. a stretcher needing to be accommodated on the reception floor meant folding back of reception seating. The brief also stressed on the point of giving emphasis to more single in-patient rooms providing the patients with the required privacy. Small but malleable detailed incorporations were done to the design giving it a more personal touch.

My Design Philosophy:
While designing a space the most important thing that we try to create are good, positive vibes. only then can you design a beautiful functional space not only for your eyes to see but also for your overall well being. There has to be a right balance between all the elements for the livable space to be converted into an inspiriting haven.
