EMBT and Patricia Urquiola complete Maggie's Barcelona at Sant Pau Hospital



EMBT has completed a Maggie's Centre for cancer care at an art nouveau-hospital in Barcelona, with interiors designed by Patricia Urquiola.
Located in the grounds of the Sant Pau Hospital, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Spain, the Kálida Sant Pau Centre is the first building created by the Maggie's Centres charity in mainland Europe.
It is distinguished by its red-brick facades, adorned with honeycomb-shaped ceramic tiles, which EMBT designed to complement the decorative, brick hospital.

The Kálida Sant Pau Centre is positioned with direct access to the hospital's oncology department, however to offer an escape from a medical environment it is enveloped by a garden lined with patios, trees and pergolas. Inside, the ground floor has flexible, communal spaces, including a kitchen area and small library. A spacious, double-height dining area sits at its centre.
Above, the first floor has counselling and meeting rooms that lead out onto a landing area that looks down into the dining room.
