Clínica Diagonal barcelona

The new hospital of Mutua FIATC in Barcelona is located in a strategic place in the city, just in west acces of the Ronda de Dalt, one of the most important ways in Barcelona. 

The idea wants to create a  dialogue between  the new building  and the nearest places that conditioned  the project by  the relation of the different  important  elements and solved a concrete program of medicine. The new  Clínica Diagonal has 80 rooms, 7 suites,  16 medical offices, 6 operating rooms, 6 emergency boxes and all the services that a hospital need it. 

The site characteristics and the Ronda de Dalt conditioned the building size, that presents a continous facade that looks to Barcelona and frames the outline of one of the main arteries of the city.

We propose a monolithic building of horizontal clear vocation, materialized in white precast concrete resting on a concrete podium ink, which allows the activity away from heavy traffic, resulting in a noise, and to exalt the common areas of the clinic.

As if a continuation of the same land is involved, the particular “stylobate” only drilled in the coffee  area  and  access,  occupies  the  most  private  uses  of the clinic, operating rooms, emergency area, oncology, neonatal, … as well as technical plant building.


The upper floors rise providing consulting areas and rooms of fabulous views of the city. Symmetrically distributed about a central longitudinal axis, rooms are distributed on both sides, the south  side overlooking  the city of Barcelona framed by the sea  and the northeast side of the forest of Vallvidrera as a backdrop.
