Martí i Julià Hospital Park in Salt consists of sanitary buildings and a public urban park. The building for severe mental disorders is the first of the complex and the closest to the old building on the site. This building forms an L and sets around a patio that embraces the communal activities.
To integrate the structure into the natural and the built environments, and to favor the therapies for patients, the building has only two floors: the ground floor is directly related to the trees and green areas. The reduced size, the discreet color of the façades, and the regular rhythm of the volumes define a building that is satisfactorily inserted into the environment and that even marks its natural characteristics.
