GRANDS PRIX DU DESIGN – 16th edition
Discipline : Architecture
Categories : Other categories in architecture / Concept & Unbuilt : Platinum Winner
The project is a crucial part of the plan to strengthen Guinea Conakry\’s health system, with the aim of improving the overall health conditions and access to care in the country. It has been developed in response to the needs identified by the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Guinea.
The goal is to construct health facilities across the country in a well-planned and strategic manner, which are adapted to the economic situation of the country. To achieve this, a concept of modular and scalable hospital facilities has been developed, which allows for an optimal level of reactivity essential for the rapid expansion and sustainability of a networked healthcare system.
The architectural design has been optimized to reduce energy consumption and provide maximum comfort for users. This includes passive solar protection, natural ventilation maximization, and efficient cooling systems.
The proposed facilities are Regional Hospital Centers with a capacity of 200 beds, providing medicine, surgery, pediatrics, and gyneco-obstetrics services, as well as other specialties based on the needs of the local hospitals.
The project will initially be implemented in Guinea Maritime and Middle Guinea, near the cities of Kindia and Labé, where the current healthcare infrastructure is outdated and understaffed, and needs to be replaced.
