First new inpatient ward completes at Bumrungrad International Hospital, Bangkok

Chapman Taylor’s Bangkok studio has completed the renovation of the Level 6 inpatient ward at Bumrungrad International Hospital. The renovation of floors 7-12 starts next month with 25,000 square meters in total - 363 rooms and 401 beds.

Set in the heart of Bangkok on Sukhumvit Road, Bumrungrad International Hospital is fast becoming a sought-after ‘medical tourism’ destination. With the appearance and service of a five-star hotel, the hospital has been internationally acclaimed and recognised for providing high standards of treatment. The hospital was recently ranked number nine in the top ten hospitals in the world.

In total, 363 rooms are part of the renovation. The works will ensure the freshness and livability of the spaces for the next ten years, with a luxury ‘high-end’ appearance within the boundaries of, and integrating with, a healthcare environment. Additional infrastructure upgrades, mainly to the common spaces/areas, will take place concurrently.

The design concept was inspired by nature, art and wellness. The overall mood is of luxury and comfort, considering Feng Shui in order to relieve patients’ stress. Nature is reflected in the use of natural materials such as wood panelling and marble stones, to create a calm and relaxed atmosphere. Art is an intrinsic part of the air of sophistication and a luxury hotel environment.

Warm decor and gentle accents with natural light create an environment that is optimal for healing. The colour palette employs mid-tones and neutrals that create a relaxing and comfortable feel for the patients; a home-from-home environment.

Round edge furniture and curved walls follow Feng Shui principles and the avoidance of sharp edges also increases the safety of patients. Long corridors are softened by the addition of curved walls on both sides. This also reduces SHA CH'I (negative energy) that, according to Feng Shui, might adversely affect patients and staff.
