Rehabilitation Centre Groot Klimmendaal / Koen van Velsen

© Rene de Wit

From a small footprint, the Rehabilitation Centre Groot Klimmendaal designed by Koen van Velsen gradually fans out towards the top and cantilevers out over the surrounding terrain. Despite its size, the brown-golden anodised aluminium facade allows the nearly 14,000 sqm building to blend in with its natural surroundings.

This project was chosen as a finalist for the 2011 Mies van der Rohe Award.

Rehabilitation Centre Groot Klimmendaal was awarded Building of the Year 2010 by the Dutch Association of Architects, winner of the first Hedy d’Ancona Award 2010 for excellent healthcare architecture, winner of the Arnhem Heuvelink Award 2010 and winner of the Dutch Design Award 2010 public award and category commercial interior.

© Christian Ritchers

One of the most prominent aspects of a design, if not the most important, is the consideration of the context and environment in which the proposed design will be found. In the case of the by Rem Koolhaas, the unique and very challenging environmental conditions and topography of the site led to a design with interesting conditions that respond to these conditions.

More on the Dutch House in after the break.
