TEACHING PAVILION AT ARRIXACA HOSPITAL in MURCIA, SPAIN by SANCHO-MADRIDEJOS ARCHITECTURE OFFICE

The medicine Faculty completes the facilities on the Arrixaca Hospital grounds. The nature of the site and the brief give it a degree of independence from the rest of the precinct in both its use and character, eschewing the peculiar hospital image.

The project is understood as a neutral, compact, petrous box with four and two heights. Inwardly ‘projected void’ are used to tense the box and generate spaces in diverse scales and qualities. The vestibule space thus arises from the confrontation between two voids of a different nature, one measuring 15 x 15 x 15 m (interior) and the other 9 x 9 x 6 m (exterior) which compress and tense it vertically. The transition between the successive episodes: void (entrance space), vertical vestibule space and void (central patio), each one with its own properties, sets the main time and spatial theme of the project.

The central space stitches together the public uses: auditorium, cafeteria and classrooms on the entrance floor, with the library on the first floor. The university departments are arranged on the longitudinal axis of the rest of the building. The ‘projected voids’ provide the different areas with light and views. They are wrapped in a second gold screen-printed skin that sieves the light with the reference of the petrous texture used on the building in an effort to evoke a  dialectic between the stone and the tectonics of the glass skin.
