DATA

Title: IN OUT

Description: At the facades of the new hospital building 155 coloured glass panels are installed. Dimensions 4 meters x 1,10 meters each. The panels bring colours to the outside of the building. The panels are translucent. Images inside are diffused. In the rooms they are objects of meditation.

The new building block is much larger than the pavilions that characterized the hospital until then. The panels of coloured glass break the massiveness of the block, make it transparent. So even that new building block has become the hospital's visiting card.

The glass panels have an effect outwards and inwards.

Each hospital room has a its own coloured glass window, which reflects the intensity of the light outside. The colours break the sterility of a hospital environment. The sublte colours invite meditation. In case the window is annoying, a curtain can be pushed in front of it.

Completed: The east façade has been installed in 2016
