Nursing Home @ Chai Chee


Located in Bedok planning area, the development is a 11-storey healthcare facility, which includes 342 beds in general nursing and dementia wards, a 1,000sqm Senior Care Center and other healthcare-related programs.

The design addresses the site’s unique circumstances. These include spatial constraints from its triangular plot, and potential intrusions from neighbouring developments. In addition, the design caters to pragmatic and programmatic needs required of healthcare services and in response, the development is zoned into public, private and limited-access areas, and areas of served and service. Spaces and façade surfaces are treated to mitigate noise and provide privacy, while still permitting views, entry of light and ventilation that contribute to providing an environment for healing.

In programmatic planning, the layout designs for accessibility and functionality, such as the proximity to staff stations and amenities with provisions of patient-friendly applications. Multiple circulatory routes are addressed including clean and dirty routes, and scenarios of patient movement, visiting, and isolation in the event of an infectious disease emergence.
