Jury Hedy d’Ancona Award impressed by Kentalis

AVRO's Kunstuur pays attention in the series ‘Zie Zorg’ to the Hedy d'Ancona Award. On  May 25th, Kentalis was next, designed by Ector Hoogstad Architecten.
The jury underwent a submersion, a method also known by new employees of Kentalis to get acquainted with the problems of the clients. It seemed simple to sustain yourself blindfolded and with shielded hearing, but is was shockingly difficult.
Kentalis is a healthcare facility that focuses on people with hearing and communication problems. The residents are people of all ages with multiple disabilities, usually a severe form of autism combined with deafness and/or blindness. A particularly vulnerable group, who not only has trouble imbibing the environment, but also with understanding and processing it. This provides special conditions for a residential building.
The jury was very impressed by the apparent simplicity. What looks like a giant schematic designed bungalow, is really an advanced building where every corner is carefully considered and discussed. The residents live in a small world on which they depend to an extreme degree.
It’s possible to view the missed broadcast; the report on Kentalis starts at 42 minutes.

On Thursday, June 5th 2014, TNO and the Creative Industries Fund organize the Hedy d'Ancona Award award ceremony for outstanding care architecture. During this ceremony the winning project of the seven nominations will be announced in the presence of Director General Culture and Media of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science Marjan Hammersma and Hedy d'Ancona.
