Specialist Clinical Centre for Dentistry, Dermatology and Diabetes
SSH is providing the multi-disciplinary design and supervision services contract for the proposed new Specialist Clinical Centre for Dental, Dermatology and Diabetes Services, by Ashghal, the Public Works Authority of the State of Qatar, leading the development of the design from concept on behalf of Hamad Medical Corporation.
The 61,000 sqm project will have six interconnected buildings consisting of a shared three level basement and a ground floor with four upper levels. The aim is to provide a perfect platform for the development of a new “super-clinic” care facility. The project will deliver specialty outpatient and ancillary services, as well as education and research facilities.
The architecture is iconic in imagery and in experience. Conceived as an “oasis under a cloud”, the Hamad Medical City complex sits under a cloud-like structure which screens and filters the desert sun entering the building’s courtyards, reducing the solar heat gain within the facility. At the entrance to the courtyard, the cloud drops down in a funnel-like shape, penetrating the ground plane to allow daylight into the park¬ing structure below creating a focal point for the town centre style entry court.
