Vikram Hospital, Bengaluru, India

 A successful hospital design encompasses space utilization, hospitality issues, patient convenience and hi-tech infrastructure. Most of these require high degree of precision.  ZZ Architects has designed the hospital which fulfills all the requirements of a modern, contemporary and multi-specialty hospital. Vikram Hospital, located in Bengaluru, India, is designed to be among the few paperless hospitals in India.  This 285 bed hospital is spread over 8 floors.  The hospital is designed with the theme which is inspired by the ECG HEARTLINE GRAPH and so called “HEART BEATS THAT CONNECT”. The concept of signage was to merge it with the building elevations. Hence a visually strong graphic of heart beat pattern is printed on glass, demarcating the building as a medical facility. In this paperless hospital the information is directly transmitted from the patient’s palm pilot to a jaotech screen. The jaotech screen is also used by the patient for video conferencing with their relatives as well as the doctors. Paperwork is non existent as the billing process is also carried through these screens.

Visually, various design elements have been introduced into the hospital interiors. Each floor is color coded and the interiors reflect this in the smallest detail. From the colored bands in lift lobbies, to the colored ceiling graphics in the semi private rooms, this helps in identifying the floor for the users.

The architectural design of the hospital revolves around the theme of Natural Healing. The hospital is designed in such a way that natural light is available in maximum area wherever possible. Emphasis is given on creating green walls and plantation in the surroundings. Correct type of glass is used to reduce the heat and glare within the hospital.

Vikram hospital caters to both their staff and patient’s needs through the design. From the latest technology to the introduction of graphic visual elements, this hospital stands out amongst other hospitals in design and conceptual strengths.
