Managua, Nicaragua




From the very first encounter with the site, the need was clear to preserve not only the trees, but also the microclimate and ambient vitality of the place. The hospital becomes a portal between the city and the countryside, between green and gray, between curves and lines, between preservation and coexistence. This also allows patients’ recoveries to be assisted from outside of the hospital. The project minimizes its impact on the landscape, rising and adapting to the topography, leaving free outdoor spaces, in fusion with nature. The plaza is the threshold to both worlds. With help from nature, restoration of health from the point of arrival.
