Jerez Healthcare Centre

A simple composition of blocks around patios, typical of the wisdom of the vernacular Mediterranean architecture, with height and proportions appropriate to the immediate environment, gives shape to this proposal in which the design criteria, vertical specialization of circulation, autonomy of the services, energy efficiency, the landscaping as a therapeutic garden, the friendly use of natural light, and the different views are all taken into account to maximize patient comfort.

These are the hallmarks of a 21st Century hospital.
