We create architecture for the many and for the common good. The result is a continuous balancing act between sustainability, beauty, and economy.




Efficient workflows and a coherent treatment process are essential to a well-functioning healthcare building 

Focusing on the patient, we design buildings that offer smooth treatment processes, with minimal waiting time and treatment services located near the patient. This means, for example, that outpatient facilities are easily accessible and located close to functions such as diagnostic imaging and facilities for blood sampling.

Walking distances and vertical shifts are minimised and softened by means of daylight and views, benefitting all user groups. To secure efficient workflows, we place professions that share patients close together, while supporting professional communities by enabling knowledge sharing.

On each ward, we give support functions, such as medicine storage room and sluice room, a central location, and each room is laid out in close dialogue with users, focusing on efficient workflows while ensuring a good working environment. To achieve the best result, solutions are developed in close dialogue with the users.
