This innovative building integrates contemporary design and technology with the original, conserved heritage elements of the main hospital building. The design is by award-winning architectural firm BVN, which incorporated a series of louvres and vents to keep the building comfortable and use as little energy for heating and cooling as possible.
Building materials were also chosen with sustainability in mind. It is uncompromising with regards to sustainability, with recycled elements wherever possible and clever design features that reduce energy consumption. Its warm timber interior, huge windows, doors and modern facilities have been dubbed as a game-changer.
