Eikenboom is a convalescent centre for patients with psychosomatic conditions.
VMX Architects studied different options to house this centre at the Zeist Sanatorium. These studies showed that only one of the existing buildings was suited, but it was too small to accommodate all functions. An addition to this building has therefore been designed. The new building is located on the edge of the Zeist Sanatorium in a forest setting. In order to minimise the impact of the building on its surrounding a circular pavilion was designed.
