Type Hospital in Gabon

Project: 2011

This is a type hospital project for the countries of Equatorial Africa. Although the assignment was very loose, the design was important to respect the equation’s habits. The proposal could therefore be summarized in several important points:
– The hospital project must be variable both in terms of capacity and location.
– There is a shortage of professional staff in the countries for which the project is designed, so it is important that traffic is maximized.
– In the equatorial area, the average annual temperature is around 28 ° C and very high humidity with periods of monsoon rains. The project therefore uses natural air circulation, double ventilated foundations and roofs, large overhangs of the roof.
– Patient premises are designed with maximum clarity and great emphasis is placed on the overall airiness of the hospital.
