Official opening Martini pavilion
The Martini pavilion was officially opened on June the 11th by Mr. Max van den Berg, royal governor in Groningen. The Martini pavilion is the transformation of the wish of Foundation of the friends of the Martini hospital to provide patients a special place where they can be at a very homely environment. the design is based on the idea that the golden roof building must be conceived as an object in the courtyard of the hospital. It must be transparent at one hand but also offer a shelter at the other hand. A lot of natural daylight must enter the building but it also must be suitable for conferences where darkness is necessary. Similarities with the hospital building are repetition and the use of a small range of materials.
The project is fully funded by sponsors. Also Dutch Hospital Design had their contribution to the realization by sponsoring the design.The furnishing has been done by VOS interior.
