Finalist in the competition for the New building for ambulatory uses of the Vall d’Hebron Hospital.

The new Vall d’Hebron Hospital outpatients building is located in an enclave in transformation and aims to reclaim urban space for people, acting as a link between the hospital campus and the neighborhood, extending the complex to the other side of the Ronda de Dalt and turning the Ronda into a greener and more sustainable street, designed for people.

The site is located at the confluence of two adjacent urban realities and opportunities: the neighborhood, with a complex local social and urban fabric, and the that of the major road and hospital infrastructures, with many large scale projects in course, such as the new planning of the Vall d’Hebron Campus and the future coverage of the ring road. The proposal is sensitive to this reality and gives an equitable response, bringing the required uses together in a single sustainable, accessible, pacified, innovative and adaptable project.
The current shortcomings of the site will be transformed with sustainability and green spaces as vectors of change to transform the city.

The design follows a more human and social approach, having patients and employees as the center of attention and offering them well-lit and ventilated spaces, taking advantage of space distribution, orientation and green areas.
