Care home Het Gastenhuis Castricum
In Castricum, a care home Het Gastenhuis is being built. The plan includes a new two-layer building containing nineteen living units for people with dementia. The residents each get 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, a shared living room, large living kitchen and a club will be built. The care home Het Gastenhuis is led by a care couple. For them, a house will be built adjacent to the building. The care homes approach is to provide small-scale care in a domestic environment.
The design of the building seamlessly suits this vision. For example, it will have the appearance of a house and the terrain is accessible through an open entrance. The shared terrace, the club and the living room are clearly visible. An awning will be placed over the entire façade of the club and living room, so the residents can cool off here during warm days. The materials of the building will be in line with the surrounding buildings.
