A pediatric hospital designed by Renzo Piano

With a cross shape approach inspired by the historic Ca Granda del Filarete in Milan, Atlas Concorde participated in the project for the new pediatric hospital in Uganda, commissioned by Emergency.

Thanks to the support of the Ugandan Ministry of Health and international partners, EMERGENCY built a pediatric surgery center on the shores of Lake Victoria, designed and conceived by the architect Renzo Piano
Destined to become a point of reference for African surgical pediatrics, the project attentively addresses issues of hygiene, from the identification of a green, healthy site situated at 1,200 meters above sea level to the choice of materials used. Among these, of particular note are the Atlas Concorde concrete-effect collections used in the floors and walls of the hospital's corridors and operating rooms. In addition to their appealing textures and esthetic charm, porcelain tiles are by nature a healthy material that’s easy to clean and requires no special maintenance. Resistant to shocks and surface wear, they’re totally hypoallergenic: free of toxins and allergens, they don’t emit any VOCs or formaldehyde, and are therefore the ideal solution for medical environments.
The issue of hygiene and healthiness is extremely important to Atlas Concorde, which has always been committed to creating collections that combine beauty with the values of ceramics.
