Hospital of Merano

Lasa marble in memory of the Lasa (Laas) spa doctor Franz Tappeiner

White and green are the colours that you encounter at every turn in a hospital. In the new regional hospital of Merano (Meran), these colours, which are assigned to doctors and surgeons, have been implemented in the complete design of the exterior façades. Completed in June 1996 after 25 years of planning and construction, the building complex consists of a flat, terraced structure for outpatient clinics and operating theatres, flanked by two bed towers to the south and west. Despite the size of the building volume of 290,500 m³, the low building and the two bed towers appear friendly and inviting, also thanks to the extensive use of Lasa marble for all facade cladding. With the exception of the entrance area, which was clad with Lasa marble of the LASA BIANCO ORTLES® quality, there are LASA BIANCO NUVOLATO® slabs on the façades of the rest of the building. All the façade panels were sanded.
