The CASA Solo team is still active in participating in competitions at both local and national level. Among the recent competitions we would like to highlight the selection for the research building of the Hospital Vall d’Hebron, together with the architect Josep Llinàs Arquitecte, and the presentation of proposals for the expansion of two hospitals in Cantabria.
Research building of Vall d’Hebron Hospital
Last January the Vall d’Hebron Research Institut Foundation (VIHR) published the basis for the competition for the design of a new building for the Foundation, as well as a proposed reorganization of the Campus.
As the Foundation expresses, “the new research building seeks to be a clear strategic bet beneficial to researchers and a good opportunity to capture and retain new talent, strengthen alliances and be a center of research reference that will be key in the projection Future of the Research Institute “.
In this case the team of CASA Solo presents a proposal together with the architect Josep Llinàs who, after the resolution of this last February, has been selected for the second round, along with four other teams.
At CASA Solo Arquitectos, we are very satisfied with the result of this first round and we continue working to face the final phase of the call.
Hospital extensions in Cantabria
Other recent competitions in which we are working are the expansion of the Regional Hospital of Laredo and the Regional Hospital of Sierrallana, in Cantabria.
The Regional Hospital of Laredo proposes the construction of new operating rooms and the remodeling of consultations. With this aim, it proposes the creation of an Intermediate Care Unit through the URCE (Recovery and Special Care Unit) model and the renovation of the Hospital’s Surgical-Obstetric Block.
On the other hand, the Sierrallana Regional Hospital exposes the need for the construction of a new building for external consultations, which allows for ambulatory activity, along with the possibility of expanding the Hospital Services Portfolio through the creation of an Inpatient Unit Home.
Both recent competitions present great opportunities for our team to develop innovative projects in the world of hospital architecture.
We have the collaboration of local prestigious studios, such as MMiT Arquitectos, awarded with several national and international awards thanks to the quality of its architecture.
Therefore, CASA Solo Arquitectos we are active in the field of competitions to get involved in the design and construction of health centers of the future.
