Anxious to restore clarity and unity to the whole hospital site, the rehabilitation and extension of Roanne General Hospital opted for a simple and efficient architecture, with a strong identity, thus renewing its bonds with the city around it. The site is redesigned along two leading lines, from East to West and from North to South, thus clearly linking the new health centre to its home city and to the Loire, its river. The architectural mass is made more lightweight by means of a series of horizontal slabs and overhangs on the North-West façade. The highly colourful treatment of the constructions along these leading lines makes the different functional levels easily identifiable from outside, whilst adding to the overall comfort of the treatment areas near the access zones.
