The new building with the children’s unit on the ground floor and the occupational rehabilitation unit on the first floor is in harmony with the pavilion-like design. The building has a rectangular floor plan with an internal atrium, the corridors and halls are well-lit. The basic façade is made of fiber cement panels, with large horizontal window apertures and a rhythm of vertical corrugated panels.
