New development / completion 2014
Erstavik / for Ersta diakoni
Ersta Children’s Hospice lies at the top of a hill with a view over a lake and is a building where end-of-life care for children will be offered. Reflex’s concept for the planned new building is to allow each residential unit to be characterised by an intimate small-scale feeling. The units have been sited playfully and grouped in a pattern that avoids parallels. The façades are clad in light, painted timber panels to which the generous areas of dark green glass in the communal section provide a contrast. The idea is to create a facility that is warm and comforting with as little of an institutional character as possible.
