The building is developed only in one level, and it is configured in a U shape around a courtyard which allows natural lighting in almost all the rooms.
The medical center program has been divided into three areas: pediatric and extractions area, maternity and administrative area and general medicine area. In the two larger stretches, the program is placed longitudinally, the waiting rooms run parallel to the medical chambers, respectively giving all precincts to facade, south facing in the case of the waiting rooms and north facing, for the medical chambers. The area that joins these two branches contains maternity services, with waiting room, medical chamber, maternal fitness, administrative area, changing rooms and toilets.
The facades are composed using a module, remarked by the basic geometry of the voids of the medical chambers.
The gardens that surround the building are reserved areas considering a possible future expansion, extending the area of
general medicine; foreseeing, placing in this area gravel finish, easily removed. It will also take into account the possible extension of a second floor, leaving a space for a stairwell and elevator.
