The refurbishment and transformation of the old Sant Jordi hospital clinic into an apartment residence for disabled people provided us with the opportunity to find solutions to an habitual problem in a contemporary city of how to fit out and intervene in modern buildings. The existing building showed itself in the city with marked heterogeneous character and presented important alterations. The new intervention aims to restore urbanity and civic character that the institution wants to offer to society. In this way the program develops in height with different models of Mics (independent living module) and at the same time incorporating collective programs such as the maintenance facilities, therapeutic pool and others in lower floors. The facades blend in with the residential character of the neighborhood by incorporating a café-restaurant at street level and moving the main entrance from the centre position.
