Staying in a hospital often causes stress. Waiting for an appointment with your doctor, visiting a sick family member, undergoing treatment: a hospital is a new, strange environment in which you usually don’t feel at home. A healing environment with daylight, greenery, spaciousness, areas with a relaxed atmosphere, and good acoustics can help to reduce stress. This positive impact on people can potentially increase the effectiveness of care.
The new Saxenburgh Medical Centre is compact and sustainable. The hospital offers a complete package of healthcare services for the people of the region. Clever use of space means that more patient care can be provided on less floor area.
Saxenburgh Medical Center was designed by IAA Architects. The development combination Dura Vermeer/Goossen Te Pas is constructing the new building. According to planning, the new hospital will be completed in spring 2020.
Silo previously developed the spatial identity and wayfinding for Zaans Medical Center in Zaandam. This project has won many international design awards, including the ADC Designism Cube, D&AD Yellow Pencil, and Frame Award.
