The basic parameters that have been taken into account in the design of the building and determined the proposal of the consulting team are:
The desired horizontal organization of the sectors so as to achieve vertical connection of the installations especially in the laboratories
The restraints in the total surface allowed according to the building programme, which guided the design decisions towards the economy of space especially in corridors and common areas
The fact that the building is functionally connected to the Medical School as well as the University Hospital and, as a result, the possibility of their interconnection
The optimal orientation of the complex given that labs and offices have different demands in lighting
The environmental design approach
The natural landscape of the plot with view to avoiding vast earthworks
The fact that the new building will be adjacent to building complexes with entirely different architectural characters.
All the above have led to an architectural proposal that is defined by three distinct intersecting building volumes.
Total surface: 9.026 sqm. Construction Budget: 17.796.500 EURO
