The new Limmattal hospital is composed of simple, compact and sculpted massing in order to blend into the topography of the woodland site and contribute to the constitution of the new urban space in the town of Schlieren.
The internal organisation of the new hospital, arranged around five internal courtyards, uses a regular modular structure to ensure the flexibility and adaptability for modifications and extensions in the future. As well as the hospital (180 rooms, medical facilities with accident & emergency department, intensive care, eight operating theatres and medical imaging), the building also contains public spaces, open to the community, such as outpatient consultations and leisure spaces (shops, restaurant, conferences, auditorium). The rendered facades ensure a finish that is regular and minimalist, rhythmed by large window openings through which rooms calmly survey the landscape and the town.
