This competition was realized in partnership with PMC Arquitectos Studio. The Barcelos Hospital, with 35.000m2 of gross area, has all what is necessary for the proper operation of an Hospital. The areas where the public and staff flow is higher are in the first floors of the building – medical appointments, external services, emergencies and the hospital facilities – in four main blocks parallel between them and with punctual connections generating interior patios and entrances for all the different uses. The internment is on the 2nd to 4th floor and is perpendicular to the other volumes. The technical floor of the hospital is between the 1st and 2nd floors, so it is elevated from the other volumes so the perception of the block is lighter.
