National Diabetes Centre Riyadh | C. F. Møller
The layout contains three wings (bed wards, treatments and laboratories) around an inner oasis in the form of a 3 storey tall, shaded atrium under a large floating roof slab filtering the intense sunlight. The buildings design is aimed at an optimal use of natural light, and screening from the heat. The atrium houses the reception, a restaurant and other common functions. The three wing layout gives a clear, straightforward organisation, and effective logistic routes.
