o created a spatial identity of beautiful illustrations. A wonderful world of ambiguous animals plays a trick on reality to stimulate the imagination of the users. The skin of the animals forms an antithesis to their archetypal qualities. Fluffy bunnies turn out to be prickly like a cactus and grey swine are made of precious shiny pearls. With these new graphics, the client is encouraged to orient and refer to space individually.
The solution lies in a combination of technological developments and the best that nature has to offer. With direct access from the entrance, primary medical functions can be found. Part of the building has a first floor, which has transformed into flexible office spaces. The combination of all these functions along with its new architecture and spatial organization restores the vital, central role the building was meant to fulfil. The building is a social centre for the village with social, medical and physical interaction. People get inspired, are enjoying there work once again and help to build the community.
