Text description provided by the architects.

The project proposes a compact and low-impact structure using economic and industrialized construction systems. The building, with its rectangular section, is located in a low-density area of the city with sports installations and parking areas, close to the town center. The healthcare center is placed in the upper section of this area, closer to the urban grid.

A cantilevered volume reaches out toward the street, where the main entrance is located. Some ramps resolve the different topographical levels between street and entrance and create an open green space. The rectangle is oriented in such a way so that the longer façades face east and west. A longitudinal interior courtyard opens from north to south and lets the natural light pour into the inner part of the building, thus assuring effective cross ventilation.

Waiting areas and circulations are visually connected to the exterior and emphasize its public character, while the medical boxes face the interior court. The building forms a compact low-rise volume. Its façade is made of two prefab elements: a concrete lattice for the translucent parts and some GRC panels for the blind parts.

The lattice was fabricated with one purpose-made large-size mold and has been installed either horizontally or vertically to add variety to the façade by only one standard constructive element. This lattice assures privacy as well as solar protection in exposed areas. Above all, it acts as guarantor for giving a vibrant and ever-changing visual effect.

Federico Babina’s ARCHIZOO Reimagines Iconic Buildings as Animal s

When Italian-Spanish illustrator Federico Babina draws architecture, he does not simply draw archite cture. His illustrations radically reimagine his subjects, leaving us with new visions of what the architecture means. Drawing can be productive as a method to arrive at a design, but it can also help us re-interpret built work after it is completed. All…
