The plot on which the building sits has a long and narrow proportion. The building, therefore, is a narrow and tall building. The health center program has been organized into three bands section. A band of circulations, a band of waiting areas and a band of consulting rooms, facing south.
The circulation spaces and waiting areas are open to a curtain wall. This will generate a large and bright areas away from the claustrophobic sensation of some hospital spaces. These open spaces to the views enhance the public character of the building. From the building is perceived the city and from the city is perceived the health center activity.
From an energy standpoint, the building has two faces. The south side has a more compact and closed facade to protect against solar radiation. The northern façade is fully glazed, being illuminated by indirect light North.Location: C/ Nicolau Alemany, nº 1, Palma de Mallorca, Spain Architects: Jordi Herrero Campo, Julián Arranz and Sebatián Escanellas Project name: Health Center of San Agustín
