The 25 bed hospital in baramati is an extremely funtional buliding. Aesthetics is purely the outcome of detailed funtional expression. The passages, as opposed to conventional dark and pungent spaces are the most interesting spaces with skylight permeating the space forming a changing calidoscope of light and shadows. This narrow skylight has another function of ventilating the passages and removing any odours that might be associated to an hospital making it a pleasant experience for patients. Ventilated cavity walls also help reduce the heat gain into the building thus reducing the need for artificial means of ventilation. The doctors cabin and ante room have a lilly pond attached with high walls for privacy. This has a calming effect on the patients and also relaxes the doctor working in the room through the day.
