Singapore’s Ng Teng Fong General Hospital Wins FuturArc Green Leadership Award
Ng Teng Fong General Hospital has won a FuturArc Green Leadership Merit Award in the institutional category.
FuturArc’s Green Leadership Awards recognize design teams challenging expectations of what it means to build green in Asia.
As the first regional hospital in Singapore to be built together with a community hospital, the Ng Teng Fong General Hospital’s design promotes seamless integration of care.
Sustainable strategies create a facility that functions like a vertical healing garden. The design brings plants, gardens and daylight into each patient’s view. Controlled access to vegetation on terraces provides a therapeutic environment for healing. Oriented to reduce solar gain and capture prevailing breezes, the unique floor arrangement allows for double the amount of natural ventilation. The project also includes solar thermal hot water heating and a large photovoltaic array. It has been rated Platinum under Singapore’s Green Mark program.
As design and medical planning consultant, HOK collaborated with the Singapore Ministry of Health and a team that includes CPG Corporation and Studio 505.
