AGA KHAN HOSPITAL IN KISUMU, KENYA
TAMassociati has developed on behalf of AKDN (AGA KHAN DEVELOPMENT NETWORK) the master plan for the hospital of Kisumu, the second city of Kenya and the project of the first batch of the hospital.
The master plan of the new hospital plans to expand the current hospital structure already in operation to 400 beds. The first lot project involves the construction of 110 hospital beds, 4 operator and intensive care rooms + spaces for diagnostics and maternity and pediatrics for a total area of 8530 sq.m distributed over four floors and basement.
The hospital will have a great impact on the urban and local level and will be a new urban landmark.
Great attention has been given to the thermal “passivity” of the casing in order to minimize the use of plants and conditioning.
