Haga Hospital in Den Haag has had its makeover. The existing building was updated and a completely new building was built in front of the hospital according to modern requirements: flexible, sustainable and future-proof. The design, by Meyer en Van Schooten Architecten (MVSA) is characterised by soft, round lines, transparency and a lot of daylight. Haga Hospital was one of the first major hospitals to tender both design and construction and technical management for twenty years. Construction adheres to BIM and BREEAM EXCELLENT standards.
In order to make the lively façade of the new build feasible, Vorsselmans’ help was enlisted in the preliminary phase already. The building consists of three sections with two atriums in the middle. Inside, footbridges connect the opposite sides. To work out the architect’s desired detailing, we developed a new profile based on the Schüco AWS 65 system. That specific profile accommodates both the insulation glass and the spandrel glass, which features a screen-printed motif. Thanks to the double façade, the spandrel changes colour according to light intensity and sunlight. The screen print also gives a certain depth effect on the slab behind. Together, they bring the façade to life. The glass roof of both atriums is characterised by a limited angle of inclination. The roof features large windows of 2 by 2 metres with solar-proof and isolating glazing.
