1,300 Suncover filtering and blackout blinds are going to help providing energy efficiency and thermal-visual comfort in the new Hospital of Local Health Agency 17, being built near Monselice (Padua, Italy).
The three cornerstones of the infrastructure, conceived by a design team (Arteco con Prisma, TecnArch e NetEngineering) led by architect Aymeric Zublena, are integration with the surrounding environment, energy saving and “humanization” of the hospital. Aesthetically, the image of the coming hospital will be characterized by a large wave-shaped roof that joins three buildings and covers the technical infrastructures placed on the terraces. The building, on an area of about 250,000 square meters, gives great importance to natural light, which will filter through the large windows of the facades without annoying, thanks to Suncover blinds that control the beams of light. From the environmental point of view, the new hospital was in fact designed with technological and building solutions to reduce by 30% the consumption of primary energy compared to equivalent structures.
