The project comprises a hospital complex and staff housing. The housing, located to the south of the complex and separated by a road, is made up of four three-storey blocks of one-bedroom aparments and seven three-bedroom, two-storey houses. The organisational layout of the complex is based on the separation of men and women.
Traditional building solutions to local climatic conditions are adapted by the use of massive walls and roofs to provide internal thermal comfort, and courtyards to create suitable microclimatic conditions. Load-bearing concrete block walls support upper floors and roofs of reinforced concrete.
