THE NEW ABG
The ABG area in Bergen op Zoom is of particular historical significance to the city. For a commission from the TanteLouise-Vivensis foundation, in early 2015, De Meeuw built a temporary nursing home, which is to last for the next six to eight years. The new ABG emanates warmth and hospitality. 'Home from home' is a guiding principle at TanteLouise-Vivensis, and thus the motivation behind the metres-high photos of the Bergen op Zoom of-old being exhibited on the sidewalls of the building. The building accommodates 200 residents.
What's special about this building, is that it is constructed from used materials. A good proportion of the building components are taken from previous care projects, producing a smart housing solution that perfectly meets the needs of TanteLouise-Vivensis - both in terms of size and functionality, quality and feel. And - not least - in terms of budget.
