- 1st prize in architectural competition. 2014
Sassari is the second-largest city of Sardinia in terms of population with over 130,000 inhabitants, or about 275,000 including the metropolitan area.
The project includes the construction of 30,000 m² of new treatment areas, including Sardinia's first mother & child maternity clinic, to replace a number of older buildings which do not meet the requirements for seismic protection.
The buildings will be connected physically by tunnels and a pedestrian bridge above the main road, which remains unobstructed. A new Main Entrance building for the entire hospital will contain shops, offices or Outpatient clinics. Outside the new main entrance building there is a “view plaza”, with recreational facilities and impressive views over the area.
The intervention is designed so as not to interfere with the healthcare activity that takes place in the existing structures.
