THE SECOND EXTENSION PHASE OF HOSPITAL DEL MAR BEGINS
We have now one year to develop the project for a new building with five floors above ground and two underground, which will join phase I of the hospital extension – finished on 2017 – to the Mar University Campus and the central area of the hospital. The hospital started the co-creation development with some workshops with patients, family and medical staff, and we hope to continue the process with the opinions collected on how hospitalization levels, rooms, operating rooms or waiting rooms should be, among others.
With this proposal, the building is structured eliminating any trace of the expansion phases that have occurred over time, so the hospital’s operation feels unique and the construction is clearly recognized from the outside. The new volumes are arranged parallel to the sea – following the existing buildings – and located into the interior of the block to have a lower visual impact on the entire scheme. Very important are the landscaped roofs on the third floor, exclusive for patients, family members and medical personnel, as a way to also decompress the uses’ density in the complex.
