The expansion of the second city hospital involves the construction of a tower for hospital stays with service spaces adjacent to the existing healthcare facility. The square level building with internal patio is made up of five ground levels distributed by a perimeter corridor that serves the guest rooms on the outside and on the inside the service rooms.The front walls recall in the materials the travertine used for the existing but with a shade that highlights the structural step with large windows shielded by metallic brise-soleil. The interiors are cared for to make the environments of stay and those of connection more comfortable. On the ground floor there are new outpatient clinics.
New 600-seat multilevel parking in high area landscape sensitivity. The intervention was designed to make it the least impacting possible: to achieve this result, the new parking lot was placed in replacement of a small artificial hill and below the road quota by taking advantage of an existing altitude difference. The parking area is built on three levels, the first one is basement, the second one at the sea level and the third one to the roof. Outside, the only floor on the ground is characterized by open metal grilles: the only vertical elements are the two reinforced concrete staircase openings also covered with grilles of different mesh.A slightly raised heliport with respect to the sea level to allow landing and takeoff safely completes the whole project.
