The project is for the Phase 2 of the Master Plan, it is for the reform and extension of the first five floors of the central building, built in the 1970s.
The complex has 1,432 beds and will have 29 operating rooms.
The scope of the project is the ground floor up to the fourth floor, still partly occupied, making it necessary to carry out the work in stages so as to interfere as little as possible with ongoing hospital activities.
Regarding the architectural criteria, it was decided to maintain the building’s original image, with a prevalence of wall over openings, adapting the skin to the latest technologies (ventilated façade and better seal and thermal insulation for the windows).
According to the client’s requirements the scheme sets out to restore the building’s original patios, eliminating attached elements added in the course of its busy life.
