Nursing home care and care apartments in hospitable environment
The new Sterrebosch is located in the heart of the beautiful white village: Thorn. A residential care facility with nursing and care apartments. A place where there is space for the residents of Sterrebosch, for visitors, but also for the residents of the town of Thorn itself.
All living areas are set around an atrium, that is designed as a winter garden, daylight is always plentiful. Creating an atrium / conservatory evokes associations with living around a courtyard in more southern countries, where the climate is friendlier. A "on vacation and hospitality" feeling in your own home here is a starting point. The advantage of a glass coverd garden is that it can also be used during the winter. Adjacent to the atrium are all amenities located, including a library, a restaurant, information, day care, etc. The tree, green, the decoration and the pavement of the winter garden are a haven in the room and a nice lookout from the higher common areas and corridors. Again, the association with the southern European courtyards apply. Color, material and finish were chosen with the idea that it strengthened the architecure. So The building has an open but at the same understated, elegant appearance and gives expression to this new living room of Thorn.
