archipelago wins competition for the Heilig Hart outpatient clinic in Leuven

archipelago’s design was selected for the new outpatient clinic at the Heilig Hart hospital in Leuven, a facility that will offer consultancy spaces, a day hospital and the extension of operating chambers. Unlike the proposal in the brief for a single volume, our design proposes a 90 degrees shift to the upper floors, connecting to the neighbouring building and offering a more gentle front façade to the street and entrance area of the site. By slightly expanding the main volume we could add an extra floor and open up the ground floor for better access and circulation flows. The floor height was raised to 4 meters, combined with a modular approach and centralised techniques and circulation, resulting in a fully adaptable, future-proof building.

Partners: Macobo-Stabo, Ontwerpbureau Pauwels
