A health house in the heart of Elst
The Rijnstate in Elst will soon be a building where a number of these developments come together. The compact 13,000 m2 outpatient “health hub” is centrally located in Elst along the railway and a main road. The versatile, easily accessible building is situated as if in the middle of the neighborhood and is also open to residents and travelers. With the addition of a restaurant and a supermarket, you can easily walk in. In addition to providing care, the building also offers space for social interaction, information, prevention, and education for everyone. This is particularly beneficial because there is a wealth of knowledge available.
The new Rijnstate in Elst is naturally sustainable. It achieves sustainability not only through technology and utilizing natural resources but also through clever design features such as rotating panels in the facade, natural ventilation, regionally sourced and demountable materials, and a high degree of future flexibility ingrained in its DNA.
G.A.F.’s design is an innovative, compact living/healthcare environment that allows the right care to be provided in the right place. The design of Rijnstate Elst supports care outside the building, whether it be at home or at another healthcare location. This is the future of Rijnstate Elst—a building that faces outward, supports the surrounding environment, and welcomes the outside world.
