LOptimization requirements guide us to configure an “horizontal hospital”, developed over two floors, minimising the vertical distance and utilising materials from the environment. The building is organised in a double comb, where the lateral volumen contains on one side a big longitudinal hallway, and on the other side clinically intensive areas, while hosting in the central sections the outpatient and hospitalisation services.
