NATIONAL HEART CENTRE, Singapore

Architecture

The National Heart Centre was the first sustainable heart centre in Southeast Asia. Conceived by ONG&ONG, with medical planning and interior consultation by Broadway Malyan, the design was inspired by medicinal courtyard gardens. 

A network of open spaces forms the heart of the design and promotes social interaction, retail opportunities, and healing. The building features abundant natural light and ventilation with sweeping views, with generous planted areas serving as a carbon sponge and heat reducer. To keep pace with rapid medical advancements, modular building methods were also employed to ensure the building structure remains flexible for future growth.
