Apollo Medskills - Hyderabad

 

Apollo Medskills is an education initiative of Apollo Hospitals in collaboration with Finance Ministry of India and the National Skill Development Corporation aiming to make Indian Medical students competant at a global level. With an objective of imparting world- class medical training and introducing innovative teaching methodologies among students, Apollo Medskills  laid the foundation for 3 Centers for excellence in - Hyderabad, Chennai and Bangalore.

We started the project with long brainstorming sessions with the CEO over space planning for designated areas like classrooms, labs, a state of art, hi-tech conference, the cafetaria, reception and lobby

As compared to the the other two centers in Chennai and Bangalore, the space acquired in Hyderabad was the smallest. Our biggest challenge thus,was to stay aligned with the design and accommodate all the requirements.

Besides that, the height was low and it did not have any scope for open windows for natural light. We had to do the spatial planning very cleverly. For example, we gave 2 entrances to the high end class room allowing crowd-free entry and exit. Besides that, we could manage to create a similar layout for the canteen and reception making it look closest to the other two centers.
