Light and Airy Rooms to Be
Provided in New Columbia
To Occupy Center of Large Lot and
Have Southern Ex
A building which will provide a maxi
mum of light and air for all wards and
private rooms and yet will be so arranged
that exceptional economy of service will
be possible is called for in the plans
which Nathan C. Wyeth, architect, has
prepared for the new Columbia Hospital
for Women and Lying-in Asylum to be
erected in the center of the large plot of
ground between 25th and 2T?th streets
northwest, facing L. street. In appropriat
ing the money for the erection of the
structure Congress has provided that El
liott Woods, superintendent of the Capi
tol, shall have supervision of its con
To Have Three Sections.
The structure is to be in the nature of
three buildings connected by two short
corridors. The ground plan shows two
V-shaped buildings of equal size which
lie parallel to each other and are con
nected at the rear by a third unit, which
Is to be used for administrative purposes.
The Y-shaped portions are to be used for
the wards and private rooms. The struc
ture will be five stories high.
The Y-shaped portions will face L
street and will have a southern exposure.
By this arrangement two sides of each
portion will be exposed to sunlight at all
hours of the day. The main entrance for
visitors and doctors will be in the center
of the administrative portion of the
structure and Within the court formed by
the Y-shaped wings.
Occupies Large Lot.
The three-unit plan was adopted rather
than the one-unit plan on account of the
size of the plot on which it is to be buiit.
It offers plenty of opportunities for light
and air without building vertically. The
arrangement provides a good driveway
entrance from 24th street, overcoming the
difficulty in the matter of grades.
The location of the structure in the
ccnter of the plot also provides for future
extensions, such as additional wards. ThV;
grade of the ground on which the hos
pital Is to be erected, which is about
eleven feet above the street level, offers
an additional opportunity for light and
air and thereby makes the lot advan
tageous for a hospital site.
The extremities of the Y-shaped por
tions of the structure arp to have wide
torches on the level of *-ach floor. Above
the administrate e portion of the struc
ture there will be a roof garden.
Entrances at Bear.
The ambulance entrance will be from i
24th street, and at the rear of the admin
istrative portion of the structure and
away from the main entrance, in order
to expedite the reception of emergency
patients. The dispensary entrance will
be at the side, and service ertrances wll.
be in the rear and in the basement of the
administrative building.
The exterior is to be of a modified form
of the Italian renaissance type of archi
tecture. It will be quite simple in design,
nnd yet will be attractive. Gray tapestry
brick Is to be used in the construction, (
'iith limestone trlmmhig. The roof will j
covered with red tile. The structure
ill be thorough.y fireproof, being built
throughout with brick and stool protected
,th terra cotta, and the staircases and
;%.in corridors will have "cut-off" steel
Information Booth Provided.
< r.e of the most notable features of the
Trior arrangement will be an lnforma

>by. At this booth visitors will be able
?j obtain information concerning patients,
rd here a record will be kept of the
..hereabouts of physicians who are in the
p.stitution attending to cases.
Another novel f< ature will be a nurses'
i 'okout room in connection with each
ward. The room will be located in the
??nter of the intersection of the wards
which form the Y-shaped portions of the
? tructure. On cither side of the lookout
room will be large windows which will

Ott the tlrst floor reception and waiting
