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. The rooms are oriented to the east and the west side, the living areas to the southwest, with a nice view of the beautiful countryside. 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.
