They also took into account the functional arrangement of the hospital area and the characteristics of the site. With an intensive and compact overall planning layout, it is space saving and land efficient. As for the building facade, the architects sought to create a modern architectural style with simplicity and aesthetics, removing many redundant decorations.

The separations and entrances of façade window picked dark grey and light grey, adding to the overall rhythm of the building.

Since 2008, the concept of green building has been widely introduced in China, and the concept is gradually being recognized by hospital management team, its constructors and implementers. Green hospital architecture rests on the premise of ensuring smooth medical processes throughout the whole life cycle of a hospital building. It aims to maximize resource conservation (energy, land, water and materials), protect the environment and reduce pollution, providing a healthy, suitable and efficient space for patients and healthcare workers. It creates a hospital building that is in harmony with nature. This architectural terracotta has become a popular cladding material for hospital buildings due to its greenness, environmentally friendliness, ease of installation and maintenance, long-lasting and durable performance as well as the energy efficiency of the overall terracotta rainscreen structure in terms of thermal insulation.
