The building has a parallelepipedic shape developed over two floors, one of them being half-buried. The project’s ambition was to create a hemodialysis clinic that would make the medical procedure as simple and comfortable as possible for the users, creating a space markedly different from conventional city clinics. The use of white as the dominant color and the expressive windows – which allow the patients to view the nature – provide harmony and serenity.
