Construction of Building K of the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine.
In order to respond to emerging health issues, the American Hospital is restructuring through an architectural transformation plan that will increase the total surface area of the existing hospital by one third. This project is based on the construction of a new building, the "K building", and the renovation of the existing spaces.
The extension takes the form of a compact building which is separated from the historic building by two vertical gaps on all levels. This gap provides functional links between the K building and the historic hospital.
The project takes up three major challenges which will enable the hospital to give new meaning to the arrival sequence and reposition itself in line with its image of excellence, which places the best of French and American medical practices at the service of patients of all nationalities: to affirm the entrance sequence, the institutional and international presence of the hospital in the urban space, to signify the renewal and evolution of the establishment through the affirmation of an innovative and emblematic project and to compose with the existing historical building in a protected architectural perimeter in order to find an overall harmony respectful of the history of the site.
Our architectural project marks a new stage in the history of the American Hospital in Paris. Respectful of the site, the new glass brick building echoes the bricks of the existing buildings and brings the complex into the 21st century.
The K-building, due to its central position, is intended to become the centre of gravity of the hospital. From the atrium of its central entrance hall, the flow of patients and visitors will be directed towards the various departments in the existing wings and the new K building.
Two monumental staircases accompany the glass triplex of the hall, creating a visual and physical link with the upper hall where the hospital’s reception area was located before.
The concept of “Premium” aims to create a new image for the American Hospital of Paris on the entire site through reorganised, more spacious, functional, qualitative spaces equipped with the latest technology.
