The proposed design amends the historical hospital building by adding two new volumes: housing wards, and a building for hospital-related programs such as assisted living, hotel and private medical specialists. The three volumes are tied together by a new connecting magistrale. The building volumes are positioned to create three urban open spaces: a plaza, a hospital park, and a spacious arrival zone. There is a courtyard at the center of each building, offering introverted exteriors for patients, staff and visitors. The stepped court yard of the ward building offers terraces, balconies and loggias, on different levels with patient rooms.
