The scale of these spaces allows for a clear oversight of the complex thus giving the medical centre a functional back bone. The atria are designed as internal green worlds, which not only increase the buildings utility and functionality but also provide relaxing and reflective lounge space for patients, visitors and staff.
The position in the complex defines the use with one atrium serving as a direct extension of the lunch facilities, the second as an entry space and the third as a quiet space for working. Since all the atria are connected to “the passage” it gives the whole layout of the hospital an inviting and lively character.
