SS. Annunziata Hospital Presidium


The project involved a significant expansion of a large existing hospital complex, originally composed of a core of buildings to which several separate and functionally autonomous buildings had been added over time. The expansion involved the construction from scratch of two new buildings: an entire building dedicated to house the Department of Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery and a second structure used as a conference room and multipurpose spaces.

The new buildings were carefully designed to integrate harmoniously with the surrounding building context, adopting architectural and technological solutions consistent with the pre-existing buildings. Reinforced concrete construction systems, both precast and cast-in-place, were used extensively for load-bearing structures, employed in a rational and differentiated manner according to specific structural requirements.

The foundations were built with two types: inverted beams on drilled piles at the main pillar alignments and slab on pile shaft for the stair cores and elevator shafts, a solution this one adopted to better cope with the important vertical and horizontal stresses of these building elements. Particular care was given to plant integration and the rational distribution of horizontal and vertical pathways to ensure the full functionality of the newly settled operational units.

An intervention that has made it possible to significantly increase the accommodation capacity and services offered by this important health center, equipping it with departments of excellence and state-of-the-art spaces, posing as an organic expansion fully integrated with the pre-existing hospital core.
