The principal element stretches lengthways (55 meters) configuring the main facade towards the park, giving access and containing the public spaces.

The waiting area opens to the exterior with a large glass surface that permits  views to the green area whereas the consulting rooms are located at the back of the centre protected from direct view and facing the backyard. This volume rises gently over the terrain asserting the lightness of the enclosure which is constructed with wavy micro perforated steel sheets. Conceived as a second skin to protect from weather aggressions, this steel layer also provides privacy where it is required.

Attached to the main construction, a secondary compact volume appears enclosing the private program: administration area, services and installations with direct connection to the consulting area. This solid element rests on the ground and reinforce its monolitical presence with a dark stone facade.

The remaining site is divided in two different spaces. Located in the most elevated part, a large paved square with a children playground conforms the access to the medical centre. The park takes in the slope part of the terrain creating a sustainable garden that uses the minimum amount of water and native species.
