In the context of Alibaug & Dolvi village, where large overhangs & sloping roofs protect against the intense monsoon, where outdoor spaces like courtyards, verandahs & balconies are widely used in this sea-side climate; using natural light & ventilation, expressing compassion, wellness & beauty, is a 100 bedded multi-speciality hospital built for the people of this region, on a 5-acre land, off the Mumbai-Goa highway. A steel plant has been acquired to create a hospital that is appropriate climatically and culturally and accessible for its rural community.

Hospitals have never been pleasant or attractive – particularly fear-based white and sterile spaces that do not speak to the most powerful part of us – our minds and our emotions. The Dolvi Hospital is nestled amid trees and greenery, shaded by balconies and terraces, spaces for people to recover and nurture each other.
