Stantec, MAAP and aLL Design have designed the New Psychiatry Hospital at Salwa Road for the Hamad Medical Corporation Mental Health Service. The aging existing facility at the site is unsuited to contemporary models of care. The proposals remodel and extend the existing building transforming the environment for patients, staff and visitors providing a contemporary facilities that align with the aims of the Qatari National Mental Health strategy.

Hamad Psychiatry Hospital

MAAP is very experienced in designing contemporary, acute Mental Health in-patients services. The team has a clear understanding of the importance of design to create a therapeutic ambience, while, at the same time, recognising the need for security features and, essential, ‘line of sight’ requirements. MAAP have delivered a highly functional, culturally relevant, well-designed facility in a building that was not fit for purpose.

The mental health units focus on the privacy, dignity and safety of the service user. All environments, from bedrooms to activity rooms and gardens, can be seen as part of a ‘therapeutic pathway’.

The building is organised on a traditional model around courtyards creating micro-climates, supported by projecting garden terraces, screens and high level shading. The primary circulation and living zones are internal day-lit spaces open-planned around courtyards to promote a sense of outdoor living and living in touch with the environment.
