The project proposes a different way of doing health facilities, based on the idea that health is related to wellbeing, and as a consequence of recognising that most medical spaces tend to be impersonal, cold and inert.
It was crucial for the project to communicate human warmth and first class technology. The interior design makes both concepts present in all the spaces, but in different ways, emphasising human warmth in the consultation and care areas, and technology in the medical intervention areas.
In order to break with the general appearance of the medical spaces, the management of scale, natural light and colour was fundamental to guarantee welcoming atmospheres. For programmatic needs, we had to fragment the open floor plan, creating small capsules within larger scale ensembles that generate a spatial scheme easy to read for patients, guaranteeing privacy conditions, without compromising natural lighting and spatial amplitude.
The project is composed of four main boxes located towards a central space understood as the public space within the project. Around it there is a volume for the hospitality programme, another for the wellness spaces, one more for the consultation areas and a final box for the clinical intervention area. The idea is that the circulations and activities of each section of the project do not cross each other, preserving the intentional atmosphere of each environment.
