This first of the 3 parts is differnt from the other two, the volume is pushed out of the main building. The other two parts are 3 storeys high with the ground floor set back, to optically reduce the volume.

Next to the living areas are the nursing service areas located, which also function as a connecting element between the rooms of the nursing wards.
