Hospital e Maternidade Santa Maria

ARQLAB as Architects

In 2014, the client, owner of four important hospitals in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, commissioned us a feasibility study for a small “boutique” maternity hospital, located at Rua Leôncio de Carvalho, in the Avenida Paulista region. At the same year, the hospital market was uncertain and the interest turned to the construction of an office building. This land fully met his needs, given its high value and privileged location. Aware that the project would not be ours, but having known the owner for more than 20 years, hospital recommendations for the office building were made, in case he decided to rethink the project: stretcher/bed elevators, distance between floors above 3.80m height and first basement above 3.50m ceiling height.

The maternity project was shelved and the commercial building was designed by another office. More economic than architectural, this introduction is necessary to understand Santa Maria Hospital’s project. In the early days of 2017 the client came to us asking to resume the maternity project. A surprise, as the commercial building was already built. The hospital market reacted positively in 2016 and unemployment on the rise and family health plans standard falling; there was a high demand for shared beds hospital. During fifteen days, the feasibility study was reviewed, fitting the maternity ward. The green mirrored skin glass facades were kept and the efforts were concentrated on the building interior. The project, developed from January to September 2018, was construction concurrent. Fortunately, the owner followed the hospital recommendations. The first basement was transformed into a logistical support area, warehouse, materials centre, lactation, morgue and support rooms.

The ground floor has been expanded to accommodate, in addition to the reception, the emergency room, and the café. The double-height lobby was partly maintained and accommodated in a new mezzanine the administration, management and adult ICU. At the standard floors were distributed the inpatient units/ two beds wards, neonatal ICU and support rooms. In the last three last floors were accommodated, the obstetric centre; labour delivery room centre; surgery centre; medical comfort; anaesthetic recovery; barrier changing rooms; support and technical floor.

The result is a compact maternity hospital, with up to 900 procedures/ deliveries per month capacity and adequate to the client's demand, testimony that the design process always requires optimism, persistence, adaptation and, above all, believing in what comes next.
