Jeroen Pit Huis
2022 | Amsterdam, Netherlands
Connecting the hospital and the home
The Jeroen Pit House in Amsterdam is the equivalent of a nursing home for chronically ill children and their families. Its purpose is to connect the intensive care unit of the hospital with the home, by providing medical care and equipment to the child and the family, in a comfortable and cozy environment. Lastly, it contributes to a safe, easier and long-lasting transition back home.
The Jeroen Pit House contains eight apartments, a communal living room with an open kitchen, a colourful playroom, a gym, a nursing station, a central bathroom and meeting rooms. It is located on the grounds of Amsterdam UMC, so it is a short walking distance from the hospital, and it has a direct view of the garden.
Various floor coverings from Tarkett were installed on each floor:
- The iD Inspiration 55 Wood creates a very homely, warm and welcoming atmosphere.
- The Tapiflex Platinium 100 was used in the gym, for its acoustics (17 dB noise reduction) and impression sensitivity (0.07 mm).
- The Safetred Universal was installed in the central bathroom.
