The building is projected on a rectangular plot, located west of Malabo (Equatorial Guinea), near a village called Baney. Simple in its volume, it consists of a rectangular piece (ground and first floors), containing most medical specialties, and an elongated prismatic volume (three floors), including patient rooms and auxiliary medical services, on a large plot housing car park and maintenance services.


Its singularity relies in implementing a high number of medical specialties in relation to its small size. The inclusion of modern architecture criteria was necessary in a country lacking referents in public buildings. 


Its minimalist design makes the windows be protected giving the rooms good lighting without excessive heat due to high temperatures, while the medical services receive direct light, more controlled, from two large inner courtyards. Carefully adapted to functionality and minimalism, the colour code, vegetation and materials enable its interior design fit its culture without abandoning the current language.
