Relations with the landscape
Best Landscape Architecture Project
About the project
The project seeks to interact and integrate with the landscape all the time from the moment
of arrival to the main building of the set buildings, from the main road, accessing in a
pedestrian and vehicular way in the lowest part of the lot (level 1517 m). There, one meter
descends to reach the main access of the Clinic building, that stays on a terrace (level 1516 m).
From the same access to the complex, there are different horizontal and vertical spatial
relations within the architectural program. The visual relation from the main lobby with the
hotel yard, also with the clinic yard and with the first floor, where the restaurant, the terrace
and the chapel are located follows enjoy the view. This project get the maximum use of the
views of the place and the city.
