Hopital de Calais

The appearance of the bright functional building, with its no-frills and unadorned design, is broken up in eyecatching style with the orange-red TERRARTR baguettes that offer a bold and colourful sight in exposed areas and break down the otherwise „clinical“ feel of the place. On the frontage, they enclose the brickwork in the form of suspended wall cladding, extending as regular bands at top and bottom but becoming more and more widely spaced in front of the window openings. At the rear of the building, the elliptical-shaped terracotta bars have been side-mounted on an inclined steel structure to give the appearance of wall bars that create light and shade effects behind thanks to their distance from the building.
