The project contains a phased replacement of the old health care centre with places for nursery, health care facilities and services for well being combined with private apartments. Responding to strict planning conditions, a new low-rise building ends up into a tower. The low-rise building is designed with a living street. Daylight is falling into the public space from above through a cloche. The tower consists of residential apartments that can easily be transformed into nursing apartments.
