The “Bouwcollege” intended to draw attention to the architectural quality of health care centers for psychiatric patients who need intensive care. Participants of the contest must take into account all necessary aspects of care and safety for this group of patients. It is expected that the submissions will give innovative and flexible spatial solutions, without too much attention for the necessary restraints of the patients.

mr. T. Vroon, General secretary “Bouwcollege” jury report
“The jury has great appreciation for this submission. The architectural elaboration of the urban context gives the right answer on the assignment. The design is done expertly and ingeniously. Next to this, the robust yet elegant facade fits beautifully in the streetscape. The jury recognises in the design imaginative solutions for this vulnerable group and notes that the designers have managed to create a building that won’t be considered as an ‘institution in the city’”.
