South Jakarta Hospital

RUMAH SAKIT Jakarta Selatan
South Jakarta Hospital aims to be environmentally friendly and energy efficient, while serving as a new icon lor healthcare services. It contains the necessary facilities of a full-functioning standard hospital such as a 24-hour Emergency Room, a clinical laboratory, diagnostic unit, operating theatre, a polyclinic providing a wide range of health care services, physiotherapy, radiology, and wards with a capacity of 432 inpatient beds, etc. Effective and efficient connectivity, between and within units, and smooth flow between patients, employees and visitors, are some of the aspects taken into consideration while designing the building layout.

There are three aspects of the architecture ttiat responded to the site: 
  1. Orientation - the optimisation of greenery and land on the west of the site; north-south orientation of the building.
  2. Form massing - the complex is designed to leverage the relationship between indoors and outdoors.
  3. Site circulation - the pedestrian and vehicular traffic is kept separated with the pedestrian paths positioned closer to the trees on the west and the ER pathway and main entrance located on the other side. The corridor on the west side is an important element of the building, as it connects the building with the main road to ease access for visitors who use public transportation. It also helps expand the drop-off area, as well as decrease the vehicles queuing at the car park.
The extensive greenery presents a positive healing environment—it provides a calm, serene setting for patients—and acts as a barrier against noise and air pollution. Responding to the tropical climate setting, the architecture creates shadow and shading to lower ambient temperature and urban heat island effect, which in turn will help reduce energy needed for artificial cooling.

The hospital's podium programme is arranged to operate separately but it is still linked to the main scheme. This concept, likened to individual cells inside the human body functioning together, helps connect the spaces between the indoor and outdoor while facilitating the process for phasing development and any future expansion without jeopardising the forest land on the west side. The design layout also seeks to organise the spaces inside to ensure optimal usage, allowing smooth flow of movement without compromising the quality of the view.

The project has been awarded the first prize in a hospital design competition that was held in conjunction with the Provincial Government of DKI Jakarta and Indonesian Institute of Architects Jakarta.
