Clinique du Pré, Le Mans
The project to build two extensions was the occasion to draw up a development master plan to consider how best to use the whole site. A new entrance organisation gives the clinic a new public image.
A planted forecourt has replaced a car park in front of the entrance. The curve of the new building accompanies the public from the tramway stop up to the original entrance area. The project reorganises people flow, separating visitors from patients throughout the clinic.
Concentrated to one side of the wide public axis that links both ends of the site are the new accident & emergency unit, radiology and access to the operating theatres. On the other side are the administrative offices, consulting rooms and laboratories.
