17-hectare mega healthcare city launched in Singapore

Broadway Malyan as Architects

Plans have been announced for a mega integrated healthcare hub, to be built around Tan Tock Seng Hospital in Singapore, designed by global architecture, urbanism and design practice Broadway Malyan.


‘Health City Novena’ is spearheaded by Tan Tock Seng Hospital, the National Healthcare Group and Singapore Health Ministry, and will serve patients in Central Singapore, where the local population is aging faster than the rest of the country.


Broadway Malyan’s Singapore-based team is delivering the detailed masterplan, architectural and landscape design services, in collaboration with Surbana International Consultants, which is leading on project management and engineering services.


The scheme will link existing healthcare facilities and the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine to create the largest healthcare complex in Singapore, which will also host a new National Skin Centre.


It will offer a full range of acute to intermediate and long-term care and holistic care services, including wider research and education, commercial, leisure and public spaces.


When complete in 2030 it will serve 30,000 patients, visitors, staff, students and residents a day, double the current 15,000 who visit Tan Tock Seng Hospital.


Existing low-rise old buildings will be replaced with space-efficient multi-storey blocks to increase the floor space from 250,000 to 600,000 sq m, the number of beds will be increased by 25 per cent to 2,200 and ten buildings will be physically connected, including Tan Tock Seng Hospital.


Broadway Malyan’s community-focused design philosophy will deliver a highly-sustainable complex with a large, central open space featuring a new plaza, aimed at putting the community at the heart of the inter-connected buildings.


Practice Director Ian Simpson said: “The public launch is a major milestone in the delivery of this exciting project and our team of world-class masterplanning and design experts is working in close partnership with the client’s team to deliver a scheme which transforms the experience of patients and the range of healthcare services in Central Singapore.”


The appointment follows news in April that the practice won an international design competition to transform Kuala Lumpur. 1MDB (1Malaysia Development Berhad) appointed the practice to partner with local planners to create a game-changing masterplan for Bandar Malaysia, Malaysia.


The Broadway Malyan-designed National Heart Centre Singapore (NHCS), being delivered for the Singapore Ministry of Health, also reached full height on site in April. The practice is providing architecture, landscape and interior design services for the 12-storey 48,000 sq m building, which is due to complete in late 2013.


Distinguished by its global reach with 16 offices across world centres, unrivalled diversity with over 500 sector experts and distinctive client focus with over 85% income from repeat business, Broadway Malyan creates world-class and fully-integrated cities, places and buildings to unlock lasting value and deliver a ‘return on design’.
