Aga Khan University Hospital & Wellness Campus

A new Aga Khan University Hospital and Wellness Campus in Kampala, Uganda, will create a unique and vibrant teaching-learning-healing environment in the city center.
BBB worked with the Aga Khan University on a Land Use Framework for a 60-acre site in central Kampala, Uganda. The site will be anchored by a tertiary referral and teaching hospital that will meet critical needs for the region, along with academic facilities for health sciences, graduate, and continuing education. A flexible framework allows for phased development of the hospital and affiliated uses including student and faculty housing, research and office space, a hotel and conference center, and community space. Pedestrian circulation and green open spaces will provide opportunities for physical and psychological wellness. The plan promotes compact, high-density development, maximizing walkability, social interaction, and energy and water resilience. The Wellness Campus will be a significant new destination serving Kampala residents as well as regional and international visitors.
