MotherCare: Mother and Child Speciality Hospital

Project Type: Healthcare Architecture

Location: Rajarhat, New Town, Calcutta

MotherCare is a woman and child specialty hospital, an honest structure in its disposition and construction. The brutalist soul of the building was conceived with the idea of breathing life into the spaces; an architecture where light, wind and water are considered as living things, an environment is created that is surreal and sublime. Light is let in through huge openings and water is made to flow naturally, greenery is graded into built structure. Simple geometrical forms were created to establish stability and equilibrium. Scale and proportion of the building was played with to enclose spaces that heal.
