The project is characterized by its rational use of the available plot, functional organization, structuring of circulation and separation of outpatient and inpatient activities.
The hospital has a capacity of 240 beds and 390 parking spaces laid out on 5 floors. In order to reduce the impact of its height and scale the building is articulated into three clearly differentiated parts: central and general services, inpatient care and outpatient activity.
The triangular area created between the two blocks is a covered public space which gives access to the Hospital. The circulation is divided, separating internal patients and visitors. The proposal takes advantage of the existing vehicle-access concourse to accommodate the entrance plaza serving the new building, which is connected to the existing hospital wards by an underground tunnel.
