Appreciation towards Nuno Piedade Alexandre for providing the following description:

本项目始于2015年,直至2018年才完工。它是一个专为老年人设计的医疗保健住宅,包括10间双人间和4间单人间,所有的房间都配有自己独立的私人设施。

With it’s beginning in 2015, this building has only been completed in 2018. It’s about a health care residence for elderly people, with 10 double rooms and 4 individual rooms, all of them equipped with their own private facilities.

▼项目外观,exterior view

本项目旨在满足现有医疗保健中心对额外床位的需求,因此建筑师从功能上考虑,在现有建筑和扩建部分之间建立了内部联系和必要的交通流线。

The building main aim was that of nurturing the necessity of extra bedrooms on the main existing building having therefore functionally some connections and circulations been established between the two.

建筑师从可用的基地面积以及与现有建筑的连接需要等方面为出发点,拟定了扩建部分的体量,以便使实际操作时的功能区面积得以最小化。因此,本项目便以上述概念为基本原则,同时以使用者的真实需求为设计依据进行设计。通过将卧室体量延伸出外表皮,建筑的主立面被打破,形成了一个异形的、雕塑般的立面。至此,这座医疗护理中心变得极具特色,从某种程度上讲甚至是独一无二,从周边环境中脱颖而出,恰恰符合了该中心对每位老人的期待——每个人都是特色鲜明的独立个体。本项目始终将其患者和使用者的需求作为首要参考因素,因此在设计上开大窗,使室内的住户能够最大限度地欣赏到室外的景观。室内的层高是2.7米,逐渐向室外延伸转变,直至外立面,其上洞口的高度已经达到3.5米/4.5米。这一举措使得阳光可以照进室内,而这在以前是不可能实现的。由此产生的几何复杂性定义并标记了建筑的形象,同时引入垂直元素的表达,从而与其周边环境中的树木建立联系,并使建筑自身可以在街道景观中脱颖而出。总而言之,建筑师通过对功能性空间、住户的生活和使用需求、以及建筑和其周边城市网络的关系的研究和分析,设计出了这个熠熠生辉的医疗护理中心。

The proposed volume grows from the usage of the available area of the plot, and from the necessity of the connection to the existing building in order to set up the minimum space needed for the functional areas actually work. The concept bases itself on this principal and in the search for a very particular experience mainly focused on its users. The volume dematerializes itself through the projection of the rooms outwards, distorting main facade in the search for a special sculptural moment that can speak for itself and be kind of singular, also in the way that every patient should be. The attention to the patients and its users has always been the main aim for the building, being the capture of the most area of outside landscape possible it’s biggest representation. The transformation of an interior room height from 2.7 meters to an exterior facade opening of 3.5/4.5 meters height brought inside in some way a light that was before unavailable. The geometric complexity that therefore results defines and marks the buildings image that which when introducing an expression of vertical elements had the aim of establish a relation with the surrounding tree mass and to distinguish itself in the urban landscape of the street where it stands. In resume, the project results from a functional program, a concept of living experience and use, and the relation of the building with the surrounding urban grid.
