Medical Centre SANITAS

Valencia, Spain 2021 3372,43 m²

The project consists on the rehabilitation, renovation and expansion of a detached industrial building erected in 1970 as the extension of an old gas factory, part of the Gas Lebon manufacturing complex, to transform it into a Medical Centre. When the complex stopped manufacturing coal gas, a new building was erected to update the company’s facilities and thus begin to develop complementary activities.

The façade is currently protected, so the design for the new use does not intervene on any elements belonging or defining the architectural structure.

We have distilled the compositional code of the original building design and used it in a new intervention based on respect and integration. Ramón Esteve

The accesses to the center are highlighted by black ironwork elements. They become canopies that identify the different entrances to the building according to the area where the user goes to.

The building is arranged following the shape of an X. Then the functional programme uses this particular layout to separate the different medical areas: outpatient clinics, pediatrics, specialties, accident & emergency, care, diagnostic imaging, surgery and dental care. The attention and waiting areas are located in the joint of the building’s arms.
