This is simply great: The AIT Award 2018 in the category Health + Care goes to... the gmp project Wuzhen Medical Park! The formal ceremony and the presentation of the certificates has taken place on the occasion of the Light + Building exhibition in Frankfurt.
With its ensemble of two- and three-story courtyard houses grouped around a central lake in an extensive park, the design reflects this specific regional theme of the „water city“.
The architectural character of the buildings is dominated by strongly contrasting materials, light and color.
On the inside, this theme continues in the interaction of neutral, bright and dark surfaces with the strong identifying colors of the specialist departments and the wood shades in the shared facilities.
The exterior features a lively sequence of promenades along the flowing landscaped river banks, with bridges and pathways, inviting patients to socialize and to take walks outdoors.
The overarching aim of the design is defined by the interaction between the landscape and the building volumes with their offset layout – resulting in an atmospherically stimulating architecture that supports the rehabilitation of patients through its spatial diversity, well-designed landscaping and moderately sized buildings.
