Outpatient Clinic of Medical Specialties
Architects Elvis Vieira and Ricardo Hatiw Lu have completed the outpatient clinic of medical specialties in SÃo Paulo, Brazil.

Deployed so as to obtain a reception area and redesigning the urban landscape of the central area of the city of Suzano, the Medical Specialties Clinic organizes a new urban landscape for a corner lot with 5000.00 square meters in size and becomes a reference for users of health and pedestrians who pass by this neighborhood. Consisting of a volume set in concrete and glass, the building is organized by sector and by “key elements”, reinforcing its importance for the spatial organization on the ground and the landscape.

A first volume in a “U” contains the offices and reception of the general clinic, access is provided through the path between the square of arrival and reception of the building. Starting from the side street in the concrete wall divides this volume in order to organize the continuous use of offices and restricted areas such as inhalation rooms, dressing and mini surgeries. This same wall breaks this volume to the other end of the area by creating access to the auditorium of the other buildings.

A large monolithic black contains the auditorium marked by yellow awning that floats in the concrete wall, increasing the entry and enabling their independent use of the daily routine of the clinic, as well as ensuring their use for meetings and meetings by the local community. The administration of the building appears as a box made of concrete protected by the brise-soleil made of wood, which rests on the main block reinforcing the below the local landscape. To ensure better thermal comfort and privacy for users, offices protected by a cast concrete elements, a reference to Lina Bo Bardi to the use of “muxarabi, the elements cast in yellow form the elevations as an” abstract design “without the frames as reference for full and empty, except for the main entrance where we can see all the movement of offices, increasing the incidence of light from the east in this space and the dynamics of this facade as a “living showcase” for passing on the street.

At dusk, the Clinic of Medical Specialties is changing with the lighting that enhances the main elements of the architectural and redraws the night scenery in that space. Finally, the city gets a quality public facility where architecture plays the important role of filling gaps in the existing urban fabric mangled, while the population receives more than a public space that regenerates in gaps and rehabilitates the neighborhood as a single body. In this sense, we understand that the health of buildings should be well designed, sustainable, safe, healthy and productive, while providing a quality internal environment to promote health and wellbeing of users, integrating with the local environment and meeting the needs of local communities, with flexibility and adaptability to changing needs.
