Five jewels from the East
Big Hospital, Patna
Big Hospital is a multi-disciplinary super-speciality mega healthcare facility centrally located on Sheetla Mandir Road in Patna for the Bihar, Jharkhand, East UP and Nepal region. It grew bigger in 2018 from its origins in 2009.
The requirements for Big Hospital were not only anti-bacterial ceilings as it commonly believed but a variety of visually interesting and acoustically compliant walls and ceilings that would contribute to the wellness of medicos and patients.
The design team at Anutone worked closely with the architect and client ecosystem to come up with solutions that were not just acceptable but a delight to all stakeholders. Of great help were the ‘What’s New’ products that Anutone innovates and launches at regular intervals.
Modern hospitals are not just about wards and operation theatres (OTs). Modern hospitals are mini-cities with a great community feeling. They are equipped with auditorium, food court, speciality venues and much more. It is similar to hotels, malls and airports that are mini-cities in their own right.

Belonia Town Hall, Tripura
Interestingly, Belonia Town Hall is the only government auditorium in that place and hence a boon to the local populace. Belonia is the headquarters of the South Tripura district and such a multipurpose facility for meetings and performing arts was much needed.
Needs & Solutions
The customer wanted a distinctive interior architecture that is evocative of the region and effective for acoustics. Since the hall is being used for multipurpose applications Anutone came up with broadband frquency absorption as a primary concern apart from matching the walls and ceilings to the seating and flooring.
The people of not just Belonia but also South Tripura are delighted with a performing space that does them proud and adds top value to the socio-cultural mileu of Tripura state.

Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology, Bhubaneswar
Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology [KIIT] built a new multipurpose hall for its faculty and students. The architect desired a minimalist look based on classic elegance and the use of natural materials for a green building.
The evolved design and solution led to Slats Surco on the walls as visible in the pictures in an urban skyline silhouette with Strand in it’s natural form on the walls and uniquely turned on the ceilings. Tufbloc HDFR boards is the third material used as a relief, seen as plain white surfaces.
