Bartholomeus Gasthuis, Aorta architecture centre and the Creative Industries Fund

Bartholomeus Gasthuis, Aorta architecture centre and the Creative Industries Fund initiated an interdisciplinary research project aiming to strengthen the chain of well-being, housing and care of a caring home in Utrecht. Six designers from different disciplines were commissioned to develop a new strategy. Senior designer of Studio Makkink & Bey Michou Nanon-de Bruijn to be one of them.

Central question: How can an integrated chain of well-being, housing and care be translated in an urban planning context and in the layout of spaces in the building.

The goal of research was to develop an integrated and accessible support with a low threshold for elderly people in the neighbourhood. The research was to offer insights into the programmatic, spatial and economic aspects of the assignment and investigate how to broaden and deepen the built-up precautionary system of the Bartholomeus Gasthuis.
