From 14 January 2019, National University Hospital's outpatient paediatric services will be consolidated within a one-stop centre which was made possible through a generous gift from the estate of Khoo Teck Puat. Their new centre, NUHkids Specialist Centre, focuses on creating a therapeutic environment that is child-centric and family-friendly.
The overall ‘playscape’ design concept is inspired by nature. Studies have shown that through good play, a child’s body, mind and soul are stimulated which encourages interaction and creative development. The ‘playscape’ ethos begins from the arrival atrium. Its environment and interiors serve to provide your child and family a holistic care experience.
Their 10-storey outpatient centre is visually prominent with a lofty 14m-high arrival atrium, rising above the surrounding buildings. A clear separation of vehicular and pedestrian flow ensures a safe arrival and facilitates registration.
The spacious atrium aims to promote intuitive way finding for visitors arriving via different transports or from other buildings within the Kent Ridge campus. The linkway on the fourth level will connect the new centre to the Main Building, allowing integration with existing facilities (including inpatient facilities and services) and maximising operational efficiency for the existing and new services. The experience of each visit focuses on two essential aspects: one-stop convenience and a delighted child.
In order for paediatric consultation to be a pleasant experience for the child and the accompanying caregiver, they aim to provide a cosy and comfortable environment where stress is taken out of the visit.
Your child and family will first be greeted with an explosion of colours at their city-themed atrium. The journey to the upper storeys sees a nature-themed reception and waiting areas which will lead to the outdoor playground.
Traditional seating and room configuration are replaced by modular furniture that serve as play objects and resting areas. The sky gardens are adjacent to the waiting areas on every floor. This access to daylight and the outdoors creates a therapeutic environment integral for a healing experience.
Waiting time is translated into play time in the themed (i.e. rainforest, savannah, arctic) waiting area as the child climbs, crawls, interacts and explores the theme-inspired features within observatory vicinity of the parents.
The new centre will change the experience of a visit to the hospital for both the child as well as the accompanying caregiver.
With its bold, vibrant, contemporary design, it offers high specifications of office spaces and modern medical suites, all complemented by attractive shops and restaurants.
