Healing Gardens for Sarvodaya Hospital, Faridabad, Haryana
Sarvodaya Hospital is a 150-bed multi-specialty hospital along with a nursing college within the site connected to the hospital building on all floors. The hospital has a building area of 1,70,400 sq. ft. and the nursing college area including accommodation for nurses of approximately 70,000 sq. ft., all within a site area of 16139.04 sq. m. There is a welcoming front entrance portico which extends to a front atrium which will provide shelter for the visitors as during the visiting hours there is always a sudden surge of crowd.
A hospital garden, if sensitively designed, can be a place for a family to visit an in-patient, where a person can digest the news of a troubling prognosis; where a family can wait for someone in surgery or an outpatient can wait for a prescription to be filled; or where staff members can relax together on their lunch break. Hence the landscape was designed to be multi-functional, which can appropriately take care of the requirements of the patients as well as the staff.
Clear segregation of Vehicular & pedestrian movement was provided with safety being a major concern. Pathways designed within the landscape encourage Mild exercise for patients with accessibility and independence and provide features such as walking loops. For children, areas that allow for stress-reducing physical activities and playing are included within the greens. Access to nature and other positive distractions are encouraged by the inviting pergolas.
