This is a project by UArchitects and it is located at Maarheeze, Eindhoven, Netherlands. There are sixteen images for Senior Care Housing.
At the location of the former shopping centre “de Brink” and where a care home (Marishof) and ten sheltered houses were situated. At this location has been designed a new care housing for elder people.
This projects exists in four parts.
It is also the aorta of the complex that provides the following main functions:
The region and the history around Maarheeze (region Eindhoven) are a reason for the use of material, colour and texture. It is a translation of a historical rural substance into a coded message. This will be visible when intensively studying the building. In small amounts, images of “recognition” come up in our consciousness and because of that, acceptance of relative large extra care housing in a small community is being simplified. The materials are distracted from the rural scenery and the process of transience. After a while they show light grey patina. We have developed a special concrete large brick for this project in the spirit of “Cradle to Cradle”. It was produced not far from the site with low energy cost and it can be reused if necessary.
