The facade of The View Hospital.

Chapman Taylor, a leading global architect and masterplanner, says it has been signed up by UCC Holding to develop the design for the façade of a new private hospital in Doha, Qatar.

Spread over a 95,000-sq-m area, the View Hospital is a luxurious 250-bed facility located in the prestigious Al Qutaifiya district, close to Lusail, Katara and The Pearl Qatar.

The 19-storey development is in a prime location, with high visibility from both the Lusail Expressway and from The Pearl.

Chapman Taylor points out that it has bagged the order after winning a client design competition.

“Our design responds to the beautiful waterside context with a sleek, contemporary and elegant façade which integrates LED technology to produce the effect of water flowing across its centre. The bright exterior reflects the luxury hospitality healthcare on offer at the facility, exuding a sense of tranquility and wellbeing,” explains Javier Vieiro, the Associate Director (Madrid) at Chapman Taylor.

Operated by Elegancia Healthcare, the hospital will offer a comprehensive range of medical services and facilities, including 10 operating rooms, a 17-bed critical care facility, seven delivery suites and 12 neo-natal intensive care units as well as five floors of private accommodation and 65 VIP or VVIP suites, he states.

An expert in masterplanning, mixed-use, retail, residential and hospitality, Vieiro has been involved in the extensive design and construction work for several Spanish and international projects, including the project and resident architect role during the construction of Mall of Qatar in Doha.

“To ensure the delivery of world-class clinical care for Doha, the client has partnered with the internationally renowned Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, which is ranked in the top 10 hospitals in the world,” he adds.

Construction work is likely to begin this year and is due for completion by August 2022.
