Place: Hammam-Sousse. Tunisia
Surface: 28.000 sqm
Status: Project (on going)
Typology: New building, Hospital
The project of the 140-bed Sousse private hospital, which was won in an international competition, consists of two compact buildings, one dedicated to the clinical services and the inpatient units, and the other one for outpatient visits. These volumes are linked by a vertical volume hall. This part of the building features a magnificent showcase through which the visitors can see the four floors of the clinic. Natural lighting and ventilation through open space have been prioritized, as well as courtyards and gardens, to enhance the feeling of climate and visual comfort of the patients. In the development of the clinic project, the sustainability has been very important, achieving among the other measures, a significant reduction of energy consumption for the whole set.
