There were two successful tenders for designing one of the most significant investments of the Healthy Budapest Program. One of them, submitted by the M-Teampannon office, shared a number of prospective designs and layouts online.
According to Magyar Építők, the aim of the Healthy Budapest Program is to modernise, expand, and transform the Hungarian capital’s health infrastructure. The investment of 700 billion forints includes renovating buildings and building new ones for hospitals and doctor’s offices, as well as building central hospitals.
Four new central hospitals
These central hospitals will take on the role of being the central healthcare provider in certain districts of Budapest. The plans include building four such central hospitals, and three of them already have successful tenders regarding the design.
At the moment, the South-Buda Central Hospital (DBC) is at a stage where the one design that will be realised has to be chosen from two successful tenders. The choices are Tamás Noll’s M-Teampannon Ltd. and architect Pál András Rutkai.
M-Teampannon shared some prospective designs and layouts on their website. Their plans foresee the building of the central hospital having a spatial structure that is clear and transparent. Ensuring the easy movement of people was an important aspect to consider when designing both the inside and the outside of the building.
Therefore, the care facilities would be built in the shape of plum stone, while the children’s care unit would have the shape of an amoeba. Moreover, letting in as much natural light as possible was another significant issue to consider. Conservatories and a series of climate gardens would thus be crucial in the life of the new building.
In the centre of it all: people
Numerous experts are involved in the planning process to ensure that the most modern technologies of medicine can be implemented in the building in a timely manner. They also want to take on the responsibilities of a public healthcare provider at the best pace possible.
Plans of the central hospital promise to provide patients with VIP-level and extra-modern care. The place will be a patient- and human-centric hospital, showing a stark difference to what its predecessors are known for.
