The project arises from the need to renovate the old medical office-library of the town, a single floor, long and narrow building, 33.50 m x 8 m, which focuses its main facade south. Half of the building is not in use with the transfer of the library to the new House of Culture; this coupled with the demand of a growing population, enables the entire building to be used for medical purposes, increasing the number of consultations, including extraction and pediatrics.
A single module in each houses all of the necessary facilities including a bed, office, bathroom, kitchenette and storage space. In addition, a pair of double-height duplex units accommodate two of the modules, stacked one above the other, with the higher box resting on a structural beam that crosses the space.
The aim was to maintain many typical details such as stucco ceilings, coffered doors and the parquet floors while, at the same time, create a modern high-quality ambience that shows not only the new beginning in these traditional rooms but also point out a renewed long-term use. The central focal point of the practice is the entrance.
