public medical center cedt. daimiel

daimiel cedt, resolves the program of primary and emergency care on the ground floor, being the areas with the highest flow of people, repeating on the top floor, the same functional scheme of parallel corridors to house specialty consultations, residence of health personnel and surgical block. abroad, the project tries to solve the image of a public-use building inserted in the perimeter of the house, so it is coated with a metal skin of microperforated galvanized sheet slats to lose the scale of the room's recess and return a volume textured that manages to protect the interior of neighboring views while improving the thermal conditions of the building. inside, the building opens to 5 courtyards lined with corrugated sheet, around which the queries follow each other and the circulations and waiting rooms on the other, which enjoy optimal conditions of glazed fronts ventilation and lighting. the profile of the building is slightly interwoven by incorporating the volumes of the installation boxes that align with the plane of the facade and the drains that produce the different accesses and the upper floor terrace. in the same way, the corners of the accesses fold in plan allowing the extension of the sidewalks as urban lobbies in the areas of greater traffic, blurring the perimeter of the building.
