The Grand Paris-Nord University Hospital is distinguished by its desire to create a building and interior architecture that are highly resilient over time. In order to cope with crises, constantly evolving techniques and the rapid changes taking place in our society, the building has been designed to accommodate the hospital's functional units in a typology that offers maximum scalability.
The design of the Campus Hospitalo-Universitaire Saint-Ouen Grand Paris-Nord is based on the principle that "a hospital where it's good to work is one where it's good to be treated". A "magnet" hospital is one that attracts and retains staff, creates a working environment conducive to safe, high-quality care, and reconciles quality of working life with excellence.The consortium, comprising Architecturestudio, Artelia and Patrick Jouin iD, focused on the essence of the project, which is strongly expressed in the attention paid to efficiency and simplicity, but also in the ambition to take care of the quality of the interior architecture, details and design, whether they are accessible to the public or reserved for the care teams and technicians in charge of the smooth running of this treatment machine. Hospitality is the most important factor in the appeal of a state-of-the-art hospital. The project aims to strike the right balance between a reassuring, sober, functional environment and a highly technical, high-performance building.
