The building is organized around a linear axis of circulation that connects the 4 programmatic volumes and opens visually, along its entire length, to the farmhouse and the new pedestrian area that connects to the existing civic center. These volumes are adapted to the topography and rotate slightly allowing the appearance of green courtyards that help to preserve the privacy of the offices and waiting rooms while introducing nature inside the building.

Wood and ceramics are the natural materials present in the interior spaces, that create a relaxed atmosphere of well-being together with the naturalization of the patios, essential for the users of the health center.On the main façade, the decision to set back the volume than the plot limit allows to create an access square that helps to give representativeness to the building and dignify the access.

In terms of materialization, exposed ceramic tile is used as the façade skin, as a local and low-maintenance material.Passive solutions as cross-ventilation, natural lighting of spaces, the use of rainwater for irrigation and solar protections achieve to make an energy-efficient building with a good ecological footprint and a class A energy rating.
