Kirksey was selected to design Ashwin’s Medical College as a premier teaching hospital and college located in Kathmandu, Nepal. Located on the southern edge of Kathmandu, the site’s rolling terrain is adjacent to a tributary of the Bagmati River. When completed, Ashwin’s Medical College will consist of a 415,000-sf, 700-bed teaching hospital, a 142,000-sf classroom and academic building and a 172,000-sf, 500-bed men’s and woman’s dormitory, dining and recreational space.
The design will accommodate future expansion and provide additional sites for medical research facilities and commercial development. Kirksey designed the campus to complement the surrounding river, the valley and the Himalayan mountain range.
