1992 FAD Architecture Prize - Renovations and Rehabilitations
2018 Selected in the Panorama of Works at the 14th Spanish Biennial of Architecture and Urbanism
Hospital del Mar was designated as the hospital centre for the Olympic Games in 1992; which led to an in-depth modernization of the spaces and equipment of the existing building, a mono-bloc volume of 11 floors built in 1973. The volume was unconnected with the surroundings but included a public garden for access.
As well as the structural and interior remodelling of the hospital building, the renovation plan included the definition of a biomedical research park, a building for outpatient consultations and a building for the Municipal Medical Research Institute.
The 1992 extension is intended to integrate the hospital into the city's revivified maritime front and form the east façade of this macro-block dedicated to health sciences. Also, it recovers and connects the different pavilions existing since 1929.
The new hospital building completes the west façade of the health macro-block of Hospital del Mar and opens towards the Barceloneta park. The first phase of the extension project for hospital services incorporates the criteria adopted since the renovation in 1992 and becomes the starting point in the transformation of the spaces for the future. In consequence, criteria of energy efficiency are adopted and infrastructures of the latest technology are used.
The topographical relation with the immediate surroundings of the block and with the external structures is fundamental. The materials of façade and internal finishes follow the line of the buildings of the block: exposed concrete, glass and wood, lacquered steel and die-cut aluminium sheet, coloured resin panels.
