UDHAVUM KARANGAL – GAYATHRI MISSION HOSPITAL

 

“THE WAY TO GET MEANING INTO LIFE IS TO DEVOTE YOURSELF TO LOVING OTHERS , DEVOTE YOURSELF TO THE COMMUNITY AND TO CREATE SOMETHING THAT GIVES PURPOSE AND MEANING TO LIFE “

UDHAVUM KARANGAL is one such organisation which was started with a vision of creating “awareness in society that we as a part of the same humanity and together we can build a compassionate world”
UDHAVUM KARANGAL is built on approx 1.5 ACRES land at Thiruverkadu, Chennai district.
The main goal here is to not design the Structure as a typical hospital, but consciously design spaces which create a soothing and relaxing effect for the visitors .

The general mission of UDHAVUM KARANGAL to attend basic and emotional needs, is reflected with maximum number of open and gathering courtyards displayed in a compassionate way.

Curved walls used on the entrance makes it a welcoming element to invite and ease the functions of the individual in a harmonious way.

The tall volume of spaces and the light wells inside are designed specifically to foster visual connectivity to all levels and to stream in natural daylight creating an interesting play of light patterns throughout the day thus having a healing effect and a stress relief for the infirms.

Smooth curling walls are used with a splash of color to play wonderfully against the dramatic views making it the foremost focal point and drawing towards the rooms beyond.

The slender exposed concrete columns holding the bold masses creates a visual contrast to the white-painted walls creating a sense of flow and energy aiding the open-plan feel of this space
