Revived bulb shed

In this area a regional typology exists, due to flower bulb farming, which is inseparable from the characteristic landscape. Inspired by this characteristic cultural history of the bulb region, we have housed 24 assisted living dwellings in a contemporary bulb shed. In this way a relatively large programme for healthcare can be accommodated efficiently in a regionally accepted volume. The bulb shed fits in a natural way into the changing scale of the main street of Sassenheim.
