however the visuals have a major item missing..................

anybody residing in the gulf will pick this up pretty quickly

the sooner remote design teams start to respond to local issues by designing insitu the sooner we'll have true responses to local issues

having said that it looks like any u.s. designed medical facility and in many ways that is not a bad thing

Perkins Eastman designs Sheikh Khalifa Specialist Hospital, new facility brings life-saving care to region 

The 248-bed, 65,000 sq m (699,700 sq ft) Sheikh Khalifa Specialist Hospital in Ras Al Khaimah, UAE, is expected to be the most state-of-the-art medical facility in the area designed to accommodate the unique terrain, culture, customs, and history specific to the region.

Perkins Eastman provided consulting, planning, architectural, and interior design for a facility that will create a new standard for innovative, patient-centered, specialty-care in the area. Designed to the highest tertiary care standards combining the most advanced medical technology, international design, and healthcare planning solutions available, the six-story structure incorporates major specialty program elements including oncology, cardiology, a trauma center, and an emergency department. Patient privacy and healing are emphasized through the project’s hospitality-like design including a genial network of calming lounges, sun-filled atriums, and other supportive environments throughout the facility.

The design team looked to the surrounding natural environment for inspiration and sought to create contemporary building forms that would forge a meaningful connection to the site. The exterior features a combination of stone, glass, and metal while the interiors maintain the desert palette with the addition of bright and warm colors. Overall, the design is modern, flexible, and sensitively integrated within the natural environment complementary to its function, its mission, and its location.
