The circulation spaces and waiting areas are open to a curtain wall. This will generate a large and bright areas away from the claustrophobic sensation of some hospital spaces.

These open spaces to the views enhance the public character of the building. From the building is perceived the city and from the city is perceived the health center activity.

From an energy standpoint, the building has two faces. The south side has a more compact and closed facade to protect against solar radiation. The northern façade is fully glazed, being illuminated by indirect light North.
