In the heart of town
Healthcare enter ‘DeEik’ offers a wide range of healthcare services in the heart of the Dutch town of Hengelo. This single compact building houses a pharmacy, physiotherapy and two general practitioners.
In the spirit of the local architecture, the volume is sculpted to match it’s scale and characteristic pitched roofs. The refined detailing with natural materials makes for a building that naturally blends in its small scale surroundings.

Integrally designed architecture and interior
ARX designed both the exterior and interior of De Eik resulting in a uniform look and feel. Connection with the natural surroundings is the underlying theme. Natural materials, daylight, green views and lush indoor planters positively impact the patients recovery. The artwork which is specifically selected to distract, comfort an uplift, also adds to a healing environment.
