In 2013, the building has been carefully renovated, housing the board of directors, staff departments, an employee restaurant and the dialysis department. Any adjustments or expansions to the building have been removed prior to the 2013 renovation in order to restore the building’s original carcass work: an in situ cast concrete skeleton structure with concrete floors, a concrete roof and façade masonry. The existing courtyard is covered with a glass roof and transformed into a charming public and presentable space, in which the restaurant is located. The connection with the hospital’s central axis has been completely renewed, preserving the original concrete pedestrian bridges. Because the masonry of the interstitial construction has been replaced with a glass façade, building A has opened up, thus forming a stronger connection to the central axis.
