Martini Pavilion, Groningen
The Martini Pavilion is situated in the green inner courtyard of the Martini Hospital which has a direct connection to the main entrance hall. The design consists of rounded shell like forms which is in contrast with the form of the surrounding linear hospital. Due to the structure the building is light and allows many views to the inner garden. An outdoor terrace offers direct access to the inner gardens where one can wonder around on the many pathways. The interior has a comfortable lounge like atmosphere which can be used by patients, personnel and visitors to relax or for a variety of other social activities such as presentations or even concerts. This project arose from a need to have a place where one can briefly escape to from the hospital environment and relax. The project was worked out using a fully integrated Revit BiM model.
This building recently won 3rd prize in a local Groningen architecture award. Follow this link for more information
