Diagonal Private Hospital design premiums functionality. It escapes the cold and lab aesthetics hospital traditional ambience, and accomplishes the “being at home” feel.
The different zones of the project are interconnected by using a similar language which flows naturally and, depending on the uses, adapt as required. These areas are: main hall, shop and cafeteria; consulting patient’s rooms and hospitalization plant, including entrances, lobbies, corridors and waiting rooms.
These programs are linked by a common thread through the application of materials, lighting and signage. Meanwhile, these elements are adapted to different uses, differentiating them to facilitate orientation and user recognition.
