Rashid Hospital, Dubai, U.A.E.

As part of an international design competition, RBSD created schematic designs for the new 600-bed Rashid Hospital in Dubai.  RBSD’s design efficiently ties the new building into the existing hospital structure, while aesthetically evoking traditional Islamic culture as well as the vibrancy and modernity of Dubai.  Juxtaposition of the traditional concrete screens (meshrbieh) with the translucent curtain wall glass entrance seamlessly marries the modern and traditional building elements.  The design also incorporates a central internal courtyard, which creates an open environment that reflects vitality and wellness through lush landscaping that is visible throughout the main hospital corridors.
