We feel a profound responsibility to preserve the earth for future generations. By creating sustainable and durable buildings we minimize the impact of building activities on natural resources. Inspired by innovation and focused on result, we use the power of design as we aim to create a better world.
Evidence-based design (EBD), is a field of study emphasizing credible evidence, available from research, evaluations and experience, to influence design. We use EBD to develop optimal solutions for each particular design that improve healing processes, well-being for patient and staff, stress reduction and safety, all based on proven solutions.
Dutch healthcare is well-known for its innovative approach on patient well-being and working processes. We are committed to designing hospitals that contribute to the well-being and recovery of patients as well as to the job satisfaction of staff. We strongly believe that good design has a positive therapeutic effect on patients and will enhance medical performance.
Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a process involving the generation and management of digital representations of physical and functional characteristics of a building. BIM not only enables us to develop our designs in a 3D environment, but also incorporates a shared knowledge and information source which creates the conditions for an optimally integrated design process.
We provide structural engineering services to enhance our design performance. We adopt an integral approach to key issues that significantly determine flexibility, functionality and construction. Our structural engineers are engaged, right from the beginning of each design process, to advise on construction principles and building systems with a strong focus on financial feasibility, economic sustainability and architectural implementation.
Building physics applies the principles of physics to the built environment. We use a multidisciplinary and integrated approach to our projects covering all relevant design aspects. Building physics and climate control in relation to a given context play a major part in the total design.
Svet Zdravia has released a video showing the progress on the new hospital in Michalovce, Slovakia, of which the concept design was done by Dutch Health Archtitects. The building is scheduled to open for patients in early 2018. Watch the video here:
Dutch Health Architects and Royal Philips are building a large medical complex in Novokoeznetsk. The Grand Medica Medical Center contains 17 thousand square meters and includes amongst others an outpatient department, a clinic, a department for clinical diagnostics, a department of radiotherapy and five operating rooms.
This week Dutch Health Architects is present at the largest trade mission to sub-Saharan Africa in Dutch history. The longstanding relationship between South Africa and the Netherlands is strong, in various field including politics, business and culture.
Dutch Health Architects is proud to share the news DHA is contracted for the design of the Champion Hospital, Kuwait. The 21 storey high tower in which the hospital will be housed, is situated in Kuwait city, counts approximately 70.000 m², and will have an unique combination of wellness and hospital functions under one roof.
