Project: Heath care centre Winterdijk, Gouda, the Netherlands.
Client: Huize Winterdijk.
Facts: Health-care. Renewal. Floor area: 4.500m2. Completed 2011.
The scheme of the current design was preceded by an extensive study with several spatial options, that were examined and tested on technically and financially feasibility. The plan consist largely out of a new building on the site of an existing building part which in itself already was an extension of the original main building. The new building consists of a 2-layer part with the health compartment at the ground floor, divided into two communities. Above, on the first floor, 8 private apartments are located. The head of the new building is designed facing the Winterdijk (a former dike road). It consists of a 6-layer building with in total 16 private apartments. The whole setup gives the entire complex a representative appearance.
