Urban Design Uithof
This 'home away from home' provides temporary shelter for the families of children having treatment at the nearby hospital. Its division into three storeys -communal facilities below two levels of accommodation- is legible in the facade through the jutting floors. Each level has an organic floor plan of its own to identify it from outside. Facades are mainly of glass equipped with shading devices. West 8's surrounding garden is part and parcel of the design.
