Happy Living


Change of function, rebuilding and extension of the existing ‘administrative centre’, part of the former psychiatric institution Salve Mater, to 55 residential units with extensive communal facilities.

The former main building in the park is converted to residential use with 38 apartments in the valley or avenue wing and 17 new-build apartments.

To optimise the lack of space, common facilities are planned, including an equipped children’s playroom, 2 guest rooms, a foyer with fireplace, a work room, a large bicycle shed and the infrastructure for delivery lockers, laundrette, doctor’s office and hairdresser/ beauty salon.

A wellness centre is planned in the former church, which is accessible to all future residents of the park.
