The 12 units within this hospital are organised on four levels around a central garden. The height of the building provides a series of accessible terraces and an energy farm on the roof. Each unit contains 28 beds, offering both single and double rooms, each connecting to a balcony. The communal spaces, the dining room, living rooms, and smoking areas are located at the perimeter of the building, largely open to the outside. A series of patios bring natural light into the circulation spaces. The medical rooms and nurses stations are found at the heart of the building, close to the bedrooms.
