The design concept behind SK Yee Healthy Life Center was based on the idea of “the green pulse,” where nature punctuated the building to create a “constant interplay between interior and exterior.” Carefully placed windows promote cross-ventilation and improve indoor air quality throughout the lightweight steel structure. “The Centre is a showcase of sustainable healthy architecture which is highly significant for both healthcare professionals and patients,” write the architects. “Opening a new chapter in healing architecture, healthcare professionals were actively involved in the design of the project from the earliest inception stage.”

The building’s crown jewel is the rooftop covered by green roofs and walls that provide a greenery coverage ratio of over 57 percent. The beautiful landscaping also helps to reduce air-conditioner loading. The architects also integrated play spaces in the garden-like environment, including a Slide House for children.
