    The new block of the Faculty of Health Sciences of Semmelweis University confidently occupies its place within the complex, which was formerly a convalescent hospital and then was expanded with the site of the neighbouring elementary school. The new building not only connects to the existing ensemble, but does much more than that: it creates internal flows and momentum. The central organising role is played by the spacious atrium flooded with light. The connecting passageways are also transitional spaces in their own right, creating small nooks and crannies that encourage people to have a rest here and there. Among these, the expansion of the space, which is formulated as a translation of the illuminated courtyards and is connected to the sides, stands out with its expressive proportions, but the staircase that almost floats into the atrium and leads through the levels also appears with its own special sculpturesque qualities. The glass balustrades of the walkways and staircases opening onto the atrium are graced with a tracery resembling a copper net, the chain link of which elsewhere turns into a graphic component in its own right and enriches the decent and restrained atmosphere with a unique motif. On the lower floors of the new wing the two classically sloping grand auditoriums placed above one another feature rows of benches significantly extend the original potentials of the building which has been promoted to house a university. In addition to functional thoughtfulness, all this is expressed with a creative awareness that places the new Semmelweis University building among the finest examples of university architecture that gained momentum after the turn of the millennium.
