2017 to Present
Auxologico is a Scientific Institute for Research, Hospitalization and Health Care (IRCCS) operating in Lombardy and Piedmont through 13 hospital, diagnostic and multi-specialty clinic facilities that work in synergy and close connection.
The Italian Auxological Institute intends to build a new health center located between in a currently disused industrial area, once a site of commercial and production activity in the wood sector.
The main objective of the project is therefore to revive this area by introducing not only a new hospital, but a new attraction point for the neighborhood.
The building will allow the transfer of the functions that are currently located in the old hospital building, integrating them with some new ones, expanding the services of preven- tion and diagnosis while taking care of the surrounding area.
A significant attention was given to the sustainability of the complex, patient comfort, requalification of the urban context, and the quality of materials and construction tech- nologies used. Furthermore, removing some of the parking spaces underground allowed for a cycling track and a green area to be incorporated into the project.
