 Hong Kong-based design company CAD has completed the new Health Assessment Unit at Matilda International Hospital

Tasked to create a modern, high class and less clinical environment for patients, CAD has designed a unit that is both professional and relaxing. The firm managed to achieve this balance by employing understated details like gentle curves, basic materials like wood, metal and vinyl with smooth and fine textures. Subtle curves at vertical & horizontal corners were integrated to ease the hard property of the finishes.

CAD founder Charlemagne Navarro said about the project, “One of the major challenges that the project faced was achieving the highest ceiling height as possible by providing new configuration of all mechanical & electrical services above the ceiling. There are some existing major pipes that have been used for the past 50 years that have replaced and some were repaired.”

Vibrant colours have been used inside the assessment rooms, where medical equipment has been concealed with easy access for when in use. The sophisticated and contemporary mood of the interior is a perfect fit for the advanced medical facilities provided by the hospital.
