The new extension to the Roubaix Hospital adds sterilisation services and laboratories to the existing emergency and operating block facilities. An articulation ideally positioned between the more traditional domestic buildings, the future Mother/Child/Infant centre acts as a liaison with the logistical zone. A quiet, contemporary design of clean lines assures the polite insertion of the new architecture into the site.
The new extension housing sterilisation services and laboratories is set out on two levels perched upon the existing emergency services wing, with a ‘shadow gap’ helping to articulate the new architecture and its horizontal tectonics, separating the structure notionally from the existing volume and conveying a sense of lightness to the new composition.
The roof terrace is to be treated with a high quality planting scheme and nesting the ensemble into the surrounding environment
