CASASOLO Arquitectos 100% Healthcare design

SERVICES

  • Leaded by innovation and sustainability, our healthcare projects are thought to meet patient's needs but at the same time to solve the involvement of relatives and create an optimum working environment for staff.

    Thanks to a multidisciplinary team of experts who research and practice innovative solutions integrating the latest computer technologies, our projects are in close connection to the needs and goals of our clients. Our Hospital and healthcare projects are conceived with the latest BIM technologies creating computational fluid dynamics and full cost modeling to simplify the communication between the promoter and the construction team.

    We deliver exceptional healthcare design based on research and expertise to meet aesthetic, functional and efficiency requirements for our clients worldwide.

  • Sustainability is instilled in all our projects. Our international presence has leaded us to be aware of local and national certifications abroad from a collaborative and integrated process in connection with local laws and climate conditions. Focused on preserving resources and reducing greenhouse gas emissions, we work with digital energy models which are essential to accomplish with major energy certification such as LEED, Bream, HQE or Verde among others.

    This philosophy is also applied to renovation of existing buildings, where we believe preserving and reusing consolidated structures is not only an opportunity to understand the features defining built structures of a city but also to contribute to the preservation of the past while transforming places and reinventing their uses.

    Reusing built structures is the first step to sustainability.

  • Interior spaces in healthcare projects are extremely complex. Combining the analysis of human needs and behaviors with a deep knowledge of space requirements, materials and technologies we are capable to deliver simple and clear solutions that enhance healthcare environments.

    We believe the quality of care is directly related to the quality of interior design. We deliver a strict quality of finishes in all our custom designed spaces and furniture which is accomplished thanks to an accurate construction management control. In today’s hospitals and research centers technological systems and equipment acquire a core a fundamental role, it is essential to integrate them in the design process and to be updated on the latest technologies in the market, this is why our team is continuously researching and travelling to be able to advise our clients on the latest innovations.

    Our spaces are thought to be flexible and effective to allow future modifications, implementing safe, maintainable and holistic designs through which we are capable of improving not only the wellbeing of the patients but also the families and the staff involved in the treatments.

  • We believe environment may influence on the quality of patient treatment. All our healthcare projects are thought from the inside and from the outside, planning urban design and landscape to deliver site-specific solutions crafted to site and local climate.

    From intimate healing gardens to master planning projects we always work close to local authorities to define strategies for demanding site conditions in order to improve both built structures connections and people quality of life.

    Our service ranges from site analysis, including accesses and movements testing, parking, urban design, landscape and gardening design. We are experts in enlarging hospital complex from the basis of functional plans and all our new projects include the prevision of buffer spaces which will allow the future growth. A hospital is a project in continuous change, which should be flexible to foresee future enlargements and technological improvements.
