The junction between various urban structures in the proximity of our site defines an important part of the project for the Transplant Center, which is to give a response to the urban context in which it is placed and give continuity to the urban fabric. The very complex and demanding program determines an intensive occupation of the land; our strategy leads to the development of extensive levels in the lower section of the building, creating half basements, combining a strategy of bringing the natural light on free sides and by different skylights at the ground level. Placed in a strategic position, a connection point of all the medical services in the area, we take advantage of the slope and we create dedicated entrances of different categories of users at different points of the perimeter of the plot with the best segregation imposed by the functional circuits.
