Sainte-Musse Hospital

Toulon (83) France


Sainte-Musse Hospital is one of the first buildings to physically organize health into a centre of activity. Its horizontality, with its synergistic virtues, is a real turning point in the history of hospital typologies. The program itself did not envisage such an upgrade of functions. This typology, which gave its baptismal name to the future minivan, responds with determination to the inadequacy of the old vertical tripod building of 1963, the Font-Pré, which it replaces. Designed around central technical platforms installed on each floor around two activity centres, inherited from the concept of programmer Pierre Soulier and the open-mindedness of the hospital's management, the building's design is unique.
The hospital site is organized in campus mode by 3 buildings, the MCO, the administration and the psychiatry building federated by a central landscaped mall also called rambla. 
The façade of the MCO building, streaked with thick resin concrete strips, provides year-round sun protection and gives the interior spaces a temperate microclimate desirable in the Var.
The interior spaces are entirely white, fresh, clean, with a sadly pastel nose tones of the current hospitals.
