New Mortuary for Bugando Medical Centre

Bugando Medical Centre is a large referral hospital in the region, which needed a new Mortuary. With support from Touch Foundation, the new Mortuary will both serve the hospital and be used as a training facility for medical students. The design was organized around two main entries, one for staff and students and one for relatives of the deceased. The layout of spaces allows ample circulation between the autopsy, lecture/exam room, morgue, and viewing rooms while also maintaining privacy for relatives of the deceased and separation for the building’s education functions. The next phase of the project will include paved roads and covered walkways that connect the new mortuary with the existing facilities at BMC.
