Mcmaster Children’s Hospital (“MCH”) in Canada by Parkin Architects

Saturday, March 31st, 2012

Article source: Parkin Architects

McMaster Children’s Hospital (“MCH”) is one of the top pediatric academic health science centres in Canada and serves the special and unique healthcare needs of children using a family-centred model of care. Each year, MCH has approximately 180,000 visits to subspecialty clinics, diagnostic areas, emergency department, inpatient units and operating rooms. McMaster Children’s Hospital recognizes that children’s health needs are unique and that the development of optimum health in childhood can prevent other conditions of poor health later in life. The existing Emergency at MCH was originally designed for both adults and children, was overcrowded (the number of patient visits has more than doubled in the past three years to 30,000 visits), and had few appropriate family facilities.

Health Center Of Ciudad Real in Ciudad Real, Spain by Arquitecnica

Friday, March 16th, 2012

Article source: Arquitecnic

The main entrance to the center is located in the corner of the streets Severe Ochoa and Miguel Delibes and is solved with a smooth ramp in the retreat space, so that it is easily identifiable from the street.

The building is conceived around a central courtyard. It serves as orientation and allow daylight to penetrate the hole interior, both the consulting rooms and the waiting areas. The use of a building of regular and square footprint with a great central courtyard allows the possibility to control all the climate conditions. This “patio” acts as a climatic envelope and provides natural and uniform sunlight to all the areas of the inside.
