The 'Neuropsychiatric Centre Our Lady of Carmen' features a zig-zag shaped roof. The sharp-edged structure is designed by architect Jose Javier Gallardo Ortega of ///g.bang///. This bold architecture piece is eye-catching and modern, featuring a bright red facade that can be seen for miles.
This intriguing design is meant to be a visual representation of the mental simulation that takes place in the psychiatric center. Featuring an intriguing silhouette, the structure's roof starts off flat, transitioning into a gable shape that eventually turns into harshly spiked peaks.
A step away from a common asylum design, this bold architectural piece stands out instead of hiding or disguising itself. While the building's brightly hued exterior is surprising and unexpected, the Neuropsychiatric Centre Our Lady of Carmen's clinical and sterile interior is white, allowing for an abundance of natural light.
