Renewal UMAPS prototype

Architectural design

Location: Comunidades rurales, Guanajuato

Year: 2013

The renewal proposal for the actual prototype of these medical units, located in rural communities, respects the inner spaces as well as the distribution, and solely changes the volume and exterior facades. All parapet walls were risen and wall openings designed in a straight-lined geometry. Several pergolas were added for solar protection according to the orientation, metallic protection louvers emphasize horizontality in the volume. The official color code and surrounding fence design are kept for institutional profile reasons.
