MIRAG Arquitectura | CentreCaixa in Sant Pere de Ribes HospitalThis small pavilion is an extension of the hospital of Sant Pere de Ribes (Barcelona). MIRAG had the will of creating a more domestic space for patients with a terminal disease. The patients can use a welcoming private space where they have a ‘relation area’ and a ‘personal area’ with visual contact with the countryside surroundings. The pavilion has 3 private units and also a common area -where workshop can be held.
