In a symbolic allusion of the four parts of the heart divided into the atria and ventricles, the Lidador Hospital in Maia which will specialize in cardiology treatments, is organized into four autonomous blocks arranged on the ground in a cruciform design.
This volumetric organization intends to ensure a correct fitting of the functional programme, allowing for the clustering of functionally interdependent services and the organization of accesses and circulation routes.
