Saint Joseph Hospital, Marseille

Marseille

2011-2020

By its very scale, the new architectural project aims to reinforce and promote the image of the hospital.

It is an image that is respectful of the existing architecture and attentive to the environment, but also that of a major healthcare provider that makes its presence felt, an expression of its expertise and facilities, in the face of competition from other establishments.

The hospital’s monumental facade, fronted by a forecourt and garden, creates the space needed to showcase the main entrance and provide an access appropriate to the functioning of a large-scale facility.

The garden reinforces the intimate and protective nature of the hospital. The entrance facade to the north captures and reflects light. It gives a changing play of colours within a refined architecture that is resolutely contemporary.
