2014 National Architectural Thesis Competition - Entry No. 02

 The Executive Summary

Hospitals are now very demanding in world today. Sometimes, these hospitals serve as home for those who having serious diseases and illnesses.
The lack of hospital is one of the major problems in our present times. We need additional hospital that can accommodate thrice the usual population of hospital in order to address every ill patient the immediate care they need and to lessen casualties caused by the lack of enough facilities in hospitals. Provision of such facilities also helps create opportunities for professionals.

In response to this situation, many hospitals expanded their facilities and added the latest high-tech equipment, spreading improvements to every hospitalized patient.

One of the major problems in our place is the insufficiency of complete facilities and equipment of hospital in delivering the basic health services to the growing population, especially those people who are having a difficult and complex cases or seriously ill patients. These may include patients who need heart, lung, or liver transplants. Health and physical well-being of the people are being distressed due to inadequate equipment, facilities and lack of medical supplies within the buildings.
The project aims to answer all the needs of every patients and lack of hospital within the vicinity of Sto. Domingo, Ilocos Sur and its neighbouring towns, cities and nearby provinces.

Domingo, there is only one existing private medical clinic and that is Tolentino Clinic, where there is only 10 rooms and they cannot cater all the resident in municipality of Sto. Domingo.

In designing a building, the designer always thinks for the betterment of the residents, promoting environmental-friendly utilization by the use of different less energy consumption facilities, adapting new innovative design that would create less harm to the environment.

The main purpose of this is to help preserve our mother earth. Accessibility is considered accordingly to avoid traffic congestion of vehicles, providing one-way entrance and one-way exit to eliminate over traffic congestion that causes delay. Separate walkway is provided for access of those who do not have vehicles to avoid accident. Proper location and space for parking is provided near the building for easy access. Trees, and other vegetation are planted to minimize too much heat going to the building. Garbage coming from different departments of the building are properly disposed.

Only walkways/pathways, parking areas and access roads are constructed with concrete pavement to lessen the air-pollutants brought about by the vehicles on its surroundings. More areas for planting of vegetation are maximized because they are very essential during rainy season, because they help infiltrate too much water.
