The program plans on one hand the modernisation of the classical hospitalisation with the construction of 3 extra floors and on the other hand the renovation of the old wings. Plus the construction of a shopping gallery is envisaged.
The proposed project studies the volumetric of the building in its maximalist version with a complete floor at the level 4. The wing E is elevated upon the existing floors and a new building connects the existing wings and is developed in successive terraces.
The new facades are composed in timber cripwork with metal cladding and present a set of vertical and horizontal blades into the foreground. The rhythm created sharps the volume of the new buildings.
