FIRST FOUNDATION STONE OF THE MONOPOLI-FASANO HOSPITAL
With the presence of the Puglia region authorities, and partners STEAM and SAITO, Albert de Pineda participated in the placing of the first foundation stone of the construction of this healthcare center. At 178,000 sqm, the new hospital concentrates the most specialized services and structures to serve 264,000 users, especially two municipalities: Monopoli and Fasano, near Bari, in southern Italy.
The healthcare activities are developed in a single articulated building, formed by various blocks connected at functional level but compositionally autonomous. The landscape of olive and carob trees is maintained and integrated into the architecture with the idea of offering an effective environmental quality to patients, by favoring the direct relationship with the natural environment. Likewise, the common areas, the interior tracks and the rest areas take advantage of the views to the sea and the hill.
