Hospital & clinic design Features


Support from pre-design planning and consulting

Before the building is designed, we need to decide on how it will be used, the direction of the facility, and the concept of the facility.
We will provide you with consulting services to help you realize your ideal facility based on your requirements.

Accepting your requests

We will try to design a project that reflects your needs as much as possible.
If your request is not feasible, such as in violation of the law or structural difficulties, we will inform you of this and propose a solution.
We will continue to work with you as many times as necessary to refine your plan until you are satisfied with it.

Design according to the patients and targets

In order to meet the diverse needs of the market, we segment the overall market into smaller segments, targeting one or a few of them and positioning the accommodation space to fit the specific needs of that target market.


Design for earthquake resistant design

The building is designed to be earthquake-resistant according to the latest standards so that patients can visit the hospital with confidence.


Designed to appeal to female customers.

We will propose a design plan with a woman's point of view and a sense of cleanliness, including interior design, toilets, and washrooms that are easy for women to use.


Disability-friendly design

We will respond to the new universal design trend. Our goal is to design facilities that are convenient for everyone, including general patients, rather than making them barrier-free and easy to use for specific users, such as the disabled and some elderly people.


Design for efficient staff operations

We propose efficient staff flow and space for efficient backyard work. We realize cost savings by improving business efficiency.

Proposals for flexible construction cost reduction

We will prioritize your requirements and identify the areas that will be spent and the areas that will not be spent. We will propose an effective way to allocate the cost of the project, focusing on the most important areas.


Differentiate yours from other medical facilities

In order to differentiate ourselves from competing medical facilities, we identify the characteristics of the site, identify the needs of patients, and propose a design specific to the facility.

Design & construction system for hospital & clinic

Design & construction system for hospital & clinic

The diagram above shows the system for designing and constructing a hotel.

The client should request the design from Himematsu Architecture first, and then the construction company.

The design supervision contract and the construction contract are separate, but since Himematsu Architecture and the construction company will work together as a team to complete the work until the end, the burden on the client does not increase.

The work flow is roughly divided and proceed in the order of 1. design 2. construction .

First of all, it will start from, please contact Himematsu Architecture.

We answer free questions for simple questions that do not require an investigation.


We will select a construction company when the design is completed.

A local construction company will be selected close to the site.

We undertake the design, but when construction begins, we supervise the construction and the construction company will perform the construction.

Since Himematsu Architecture checks construction, you can reach the completion of the building with peace of mind.

An accurate construction cost will be determined when we make detailed drawings and the construction company estimates the construction cost based on the drawings.

Even we create rough drawings at the beginning, please understand that at that point we can answer the approximate construction cost but we can not submit the construction cost accurately.

​In first planning, we will tell you a rough estimate of the construction cost, and after your approval, we will proceed to next detailed designing.

The detail flow of the design and construction for hospital & clinic is here please visit.
