The land was under new urban regulations dictated by an approved PUZ. On the corner site with two dead walls on the property line, a previously approved project for an office building was in place. The difficulty of the project derived from these two predetermined conditions. Within the general outline dictated by the office building, a hospital project had to fit in, including 3 operating rooms, patient rooms, consulting and treatment rooms, as well as computer tomography, mammography, and MRI dedicated spaces.
The top floor is dedicated to a maternity ward that offers conditions similar to home birth, with specialised supervision, if required, and access to emergency intervention when necessary. To our knowledge, it is the first maternity ward of this kind in Romania, to this date (2016).The south façade, on the corner of the site, was treated as an advert sunscreen. The rest of the building minimized the contrast with the predominantly residential area, using a residential type of finishing (mainly render) and windows (no big glass panels or curtains walls), as opposed to the previous office building proposed on the site.
