In Riyadh, Saudi Arabia lies The Middle East Hospital. It is based on a campus structure with a general hospital, staff accommodation, cardiac rehabilitation, and a training centre. The hospital provides almost 200 inpatient bedrooms, varying from general patient rooms to VIP rooms with green oases and patios, VIP rooms with family rooms and VIP suites.
We designed interior spaces based on our Healing Environments approach, envisioning the hospital as green healing oasis in the desert. Green oases as patios alongside the main corridors and in the middle of the inpatient wards provide daylight and create a pleasant area to wait alongside. It was completed in close collaboration with Philips and Dutch Health Architects (DHA), a joint venture between EGM architects and Gortemaker Algra Feenstra.
