The recently completed Aashirvaad Hospital in Varanasi achieves just that by demonstrating how the design of the built environment can foster community health and wellness, especially pressing for a tier 2 city.
VGA, a prominent figure in India’s healthcare infrastructure industry, is committed to creating modern and progressive designs, building on their legacy of over 50 years. The late Architect Vijay Gupta, the founder of VGA, was honored with national awards such as the ‘Pride of India Gold Award’ and ‘Gem of India Award.’
Access to high-quality healthcare services is crucial for the overall development of any country, but the lack of proper healthcare infrastructure in most parts of India puts additional pressure on metropolitan resources and leads to a lower quality of life in tier 2 and 3 cities.
However, the recently completed Aashirvaad Hospital in Varanasi shows how a well-designed built environment can promote community health and wellness, especially in tier 2 cities. The hospital’s vertical zoning system and modular design allow for greater flexibility and ease of use, adhering to the National Centre for Disease Control guidelines.
The hospital’s interior design features a muted palette of pinewood, stone, and plaster finishes, creating a sense of serenity for users. Teal and green furnishings and signage aid in navigation and maintain the sense of serenity. The NICU wing uses vibrant illustrations to engage the youngest patients visually.
A well-designed medical facility is a valuable resource for any community, and Aashirvaad Hospital sets a precedent for the rejuvenation of existing structures to improve social infrastructure in tier 2 cities, providing quality healthcare where it is needed most.
