The internal patios on the lower levels provide natural illumination and ventilation for the rooms located in a barycentric position, which would otherwise be completely blind.
The open view towards the outdoor garden and the semi-public green spaces of the courtyards will create a close link between the natural environment and the hospital spaces, contributing to the patients’ sense of well-being.
