The main idea is to extend the district hospital by inserting a new, modern core in the original eight-shaped complex. The project will also include renovation and modernisation of the existing buildings. All of the hospital's out-patients' departments will be located on the ground floor together with the information and waiting areas, etc., which will improve the overall clarity of the layout and create the best possible patient flow.
On its uppermost storeys, the new area will house the most equipment-heavy rooms, such as 24 new operating theatres, while on the equivalent storeys, the older buildings will be utilised as in-patient wards. This layout, with the wards located in an eight-shaped pattern around the treatment departments, will minimise the daily transport needs, to the benefit of both patients and staff.
In order to preserve the serene character of the original 1920s brick buildings, the new area will be unusually light and transparent, with a facade clad in satin glass.
