This is an ensemble of 9 small buildings next to the dunes. The buildings are mostly situated around 2 courts; an animals court and a green court. 's Heeren Loo stimulates contact between its clients and visitors. That's why a bicycle and foot path passes through the two courts. Many clients suffer from a form of autism, which means that they experience their environment as fragments that they have to form into one coherent image. A very difficult task for them. That's the starting point for the architectural concept. The buildings are designed so that the visitor will experience only fragments of the buildings and the total is not experienced at a glance. Thus, the buildings are surprising in their appearance and embrace also an intimate public space. The materials in the buildings show the beauty and imperfection, just as the clients are beautiful in their 'imperfection'. Look for the odd and distorted shaped bricks in various colors and for the wooden poles in their basic form.
