Project Description & Details
LEAF-Certified, the lush Khoo Teck Puat Hospital (KTPH) is a 590-bed multi-award winning general and acute care hospital located on a 3.4-hectare site at Yishun in Singapore. Every opportunity has been maximized for the creation of therapeutic green spaces. KTPH has landscape footprints at every floor to ensure patients and staff is constantly treated to garden views from different angles, and to provide for a calming surrounding that soothes and rejuvenates.
Designed with 3 building blocks overlooking a central courtyard, they are adjacent to 8 roof gardens, 5 levels of corridor planters, 81 balconies’ planter boxes, and vertical gardens. Over 70% of the plants are indigenous, including many rare endangered species. Each roof garden portrays interesting themes to keep them engaging and educational, for example, the organic rooftop farm has over 130 fruit trees and vegetable plots with over 50 varieties of edibles and others cater to specific patient needs such as Geriatric and Dementia. Volunteers from the community contribute actively in the conservation efforts and produce bounty crops.
