The King Juan Carlos University Hospital is a public hospital in Móstoles, Spain, constructed on a 94,400 sqm (over 1 million sq ft) site and part of a public health network. The architect Rafael de La-Hoz designed a building focused on the functionality and wellbeing of its occupants, integrating light, silence and aesthetics as part of the patient’s recovery process.
The building is divided vertically into two distinct units, the patient area and the functional hospital areas. The 3-story base is structured in three parallel modules that house health care units and the out-patient diagnostics and treatment facilities. The two oval hospitalization units sit atop the base and are clad with circular glass panes, with sunlight filtering in through tilted roof canopies to create inhabitable space. The ventilated façade, supported by stainless-steel arms, is textured with a diamond pattern of dimpled glass panels, each configured with a surface of white ceramic frits to enable clear views from inside.
Phase I: 8,300 sqm (89,300 sq ft).
Phase II: 7,700 sqm (82,900 sq ft) of curtain wall. Circular glass on the exterior façade, exterior façades, entrance cubes.
ARCHITECT: Rafael de La-Hoz
