For the Maashospital Pantein the urban development Master Plan was designed first and, subsequently, all the buildings with interiors. An integrated approach has resulted in a clearly-streamlined, comfortable hospital. Thanks to the human dimension of the hospital patients find themselves in appealing surroundings where daylight pervades nearly all areas of the building. With each choice of material we have meticulously considered its lifespan, maintenance and environmental impact. All this with a view to the hospital serving as a functional, timeless building for as long as is feasibly possible. The Design, Build & Maintenance structure has certainly enhanced the end result.
- Private rooms Patients can stay in a private room and even determine the level of privacy.
- Logistics Sophisticated logistics ensure the efficient, daily use of the building so that patients are not disturbed.
- Healing environment Family rooms are designed so that patients and family or friends can enjoy each other’s company. Meals can be ordered whenever desired, but guests can also cook themselves.
- Communal facilities The circulation spaces in the building are also recreation areas. The view and the abundant daylight in combination with the various, comfortable seating arrangements for patients and workplaces for staff stimulate interaction.
- Landscape The garden and the landscape round the building have a positive influence on the patients and allow them to sit outside or go for a short stroll.
- Atmosphere, architecture and design The covered street with an abundance of daylight provides a good view and creates a special atmosphere in the building.
