By using a snowflake structure in organising the residential program, BIG and JDS managed to orient each patient’s room toward its own part of the landscape - two sets of rooms facing the lake, and one set of rooms facing the surrounding hills. Between these rooms emerges a new collective space that is embraced by offices and bed units and populated by small patios.
The public treatment program on the other hand is placed on a level with the existing hospital and is organised as 5 individual pavilions, all connected to a central space. The individual units contain offices and treatment rooms to one side and waiting areas to the other side. All parts of the building are fused at one single point, right above the center of the snowflake structure.
