The Mount Lebanon Hospital is a building dating from the 90's, its current extension was already conceived - as a symmetrical massive volume - and built (pillars and slabs), but the facades were not planned yet. The challenge was to add a facade treatment to an already existing building, as well as to a new conceived one.
From the beginning, we set clear objectives to proceed with the intervention:
1. Intervene without disturbing the successful aspects of the old building
2. Create a visual connection and a unity between the existing and the extension
3. Design the facade and the openings of the new building while taking into consideration the functions inside as well as the orientation
4. Enhance and focus on the North elevation, as it is the most viewed angle
