There are two levels of access to the building distinguished by a floor between them. The hospital is laid out in four floors, with the highest two occupied by the inpatient units together with outpatient areas and consulting rooms and department offices. This layout helps all areas to be grouped together, optimizing staff’s effectiveness and minimizing circulation.
The open scheme on the NW side allows the addition of series of new modules.
Good exposure to natural light is a factor of great importance in this type of building, thus the design incorporates a system generously sized patios, fully incorporated into the structural grid. The building incorporates a double layer of photovoltaic panels that produces green power and shades in the main façade.
