Responding to the growing demand for medical tourism that exists in Tijuana, NCMP is a unique mixed complex in the country that has a medical tower and a specialized luxury lodging center for this type of needs. The difference in the uses of the architectural program volumetrically creates two displaced towers and in opposite locations on the land that are linked by a central body that includes the public use areas and the commercial plaza.

The design seeks to create public space in two layers, the first given by the public square at street level and the second the commercial square on the first level, this elevated square which is accessed from the avenue is an invitation to the user to enter in the project and its elevation intentionally relates the building with the existing vegetation in its immediate context. The entire volume is embraced by a double perforated skin that, in addition to giving the project character, is designed to provide solar control to the interior of the building.

New City Medical plaza consolidates the city of Tijuana as one of the most important when it comes to medical tourism in the world.
