Extension of health care units
Under the watchful eye of the majestic Sintra Mountains as a backdrop, we find the new CUF Hospital developed by S+A. An image was sought that reconciles the existing industrial building with the new constructions. The volumetric expansion of two floors, continues the building around a central square. In the built environment there are spaces dedicated to green staying areas, terraces, access and parking that will promote the exterior quality of the intervention area.
The south terrace is suitable given the great sun exposure and protection of the north of prevailing winds. The central square will promote the main public access to the building, will have a staying area with a careful design and protected by a visor. The main entrance and the user's admission will be in an open space between the buildings where in addition to the visibility of the square there is an interior patio that will facilitate the difference in scales and their integration with the natural green spaces.
