Vlietland Hospital
Schiedam, Netherlands

Completion date 2008
Architects: EGM Architecten

The façade is designed in accordance with classical principles to consist of a base, a centre section and a crown

The hospital consists of a single linear block with several irregular angles. Its shape resembles a hairpin. There is an entrance on each side leading into a tall glazed hall that is wedged between the linear wings of the building.

Particularly high demands are placed on the security, hygiene and efficiency of the installations that transport water in the hospital. The hospital has chosen easy-to-clean GROHE Euroeco Special faucets for its basins. The convenient operation using the long, ergonomic lever improves the hygienic handling of the faucet. In the showers, innovative GROHE technology in the form of Grohtherm 2000 thermostats with GROHE Tempesta shower heads ensures maximum protection against scalding and that water consumption is kept to a minimum.
