AH Asociados, refurbishment and extension of San Juan de Dios Hospital

The old hospital building, raised by Víctor Eúsa in the 1940s, used to be outside Pamplona’s urban core, on a hill overlooking the Arga riverbed. There were functionality-related difficulties caused by a series of interventions, as well as problems with the surroundings, a consequence of increased vehicular traffic. Giving importance to the original elements, the intervention of AH Asociados renovates and enlarges the facilities, following the initial axis which the pavilions branched out of like alternating teeth of a comb. The refurbished brick building and the new construction are unified and integrated into the urban fabric, increasing the garden zones around. The new building presents a series of aluminum trays that emphasize the horizontal impression of the complex.
