Built in Astana is conceived as an integrated structure to house the more efficient technologies for the care of the sick children and pregnant women. The basic architectural concept foresees a linear circulation spine, conceived as a longitudinal gallery with a top vaulted glazed roof, and various medical departments perpendicularly connected to the former.
This idea will enhance greatly the “friendly” impression that the medical structure has on the patient. Thus, the natural daylight and the great void of the gallery produces a positive psychological effect on the young guests. The sense of space created by this unique piece of architectural design, together with the linearity of the circulation, will play a relevant key role also for the functionality of the entire layout.
