Text description provided by the architects. Vital Cube is a Medical-Office Building, located at "Les Berges du Lac 2" in Tunis, an area with a large number of clinics and wellness centers. For this specific type of projects that will welcome patients in search of healing, we wanted the concept to present a positive contribution on the psychology of the operators. And that’s how we were inspired by Nature. 3 main elements have been chosen to be reflected on the mass of the project: WATER, VEGETATION and SUN, dividing it into three cubic pavilions.

The façades adopt a subtle system of colorful, carefully contrasted modules, alternating opaque HPL "TRESPA" panels with a wood aspect, to transparent and colored glass panels.

The project includes commercial ground floor and mezzanine, two floors divided into 22 medical offices having surfaces between 60sqm and 120sqm and an independent upper floor totally operated by a clinic juxtaposed with the project. Arranged in 11 consultation rooms, a Radiology room and an ultrasound room and due to its different use, this floor has been treated differently from the outside. Finally, through the dialogue it maintains with the environment, the delicate expression of nature and the comings and goings of patients seeking recovery, the project becomes a living organism: it receives and gives life. This is how it becomes... Vitalcube.
