Sustainable, architectural, future scenarios for GGzE De Grote Beek

Project: Research direct

Project Details


GGz Eindhoven has two ambitions for the future development of De Grote Beek. Firstly, the site should develop as a model project for a sustainable and future-oriented green estate, where the community of clients can flourish, but is also part of the public space of the city. Secondly, the Grote Beek estate should become an exemplary project for a patient-oriented enclave according to the principles of Planetree, where a healing community can be established.

During the research phase the focus will be on the two overarching themes – sustainability and healing environment. The scenarios will be developed in a concrete visual and narrative way, and will show how the site can develop in the next 5, 10, and 15 years.
