Care home Het Gastenhuis Leusden
In Leusden, on the Tabaksteeg, another care home Het Gastenhuis was realised. The new building consists of a three-story building including nineteen living units for people with dementia. The residents each have their own apartment with bathroom. Two apartments are suitable for couples who want to keep living together. There is also a guest room available for guests. In addition, there is a shared living room, large living kitchen and a club. The care home Het Gastenhuis is led by a care couple. The care homes approach is to provide small-scale care in a domestic environment.
The design of the building seamlessly suits this vision. The care home Het Gastenhuis has the appearance of a country home and the terrain is accessible through an open entrance. At the rear, overlooking the adjacent open landscape, the shared terrace, are the club and the living room. The materials of the building are in line with the surrounding buildings and the established visual quality plan. For example, the care home Het Gastenhuis has classic, brown-red brick and a richly detailed façade. The care couple’s house is in the main building.
