The Flexbrick® ceramic fabric on the new dialysis center in Toulouse, France

In Saint-Jean (Toulouse, France) the new Centre de Dialyse de l’Union has been built, which rounds off the medical services of the General Health Cluster in the northeastern part of Toulouse. The new center has been equipped with the latest technological advances, such as telemedicine, hence allowing specialists based at Saint- Exupéry to proceed via a live video channel.

The architectural office of French architect Pierre Fernández has been responsible for the project design. The architect has relied on the Flexbrick® system to provide the building with a modern and light touch by creating facades of white terracotta ceramic board meshes, which filter natural light inside and absorb part of solar radiation, thus contributing to the building’s sustainability.
