The Khoo Teck Puat - National University Children's Medical Institute (KTP-NUCMI) is situated on a compact site and is carefully inserted and raised above the existing NUH Main Building. This creates for a large internal pocket which allows for a child centric play-scape to be integrated. The architectural intent is based on ' Managed Playscape' where the users enjoy both managed & playground inspired spatial experience. Our design stems itself from the needs of the child's development. A good play is when a child's body, mind & soul are stimulated. Each level of the building is centred around a different theme - CITYSCAPE, PARKLINK, RAINFOREST, SAVANNAH, ARCTIC - and serves to provide a holistic care experience for the child and family.
