Designed by Samoo Architects & Engineers, Jeju National University Hospital is located in Jeju, South Korea. The ridge stretches out from the outpatient department mass, which is lengthily protruded and is linked with the indoor space to lead to the linear axis of the Hospital Street. The Hospital Street is where the functions of the outpatient department, central medical department and the administrative department are dispersed, yet are horizontally connected in an organic manner.
Meanwhile, sloped areas are used to make the best use of the space in the limited space and the first basement floor had become a place for the main entrance and exit. The lobby with three open floors exudes an open and pleasant feel and it has been naturally adopted as the cultural space where the amenities and other convenient facilities reside, relieving patients’ psychological anxieties. The indoor garden and the sunken garden, along with various types of outdoor spaces, offer a place of promenade and relaxation where visitors can enjoy the vitality of the nature.
