International Academy for Design & Health

IADH CEO Gunther De Graeve visits exemplar salutogenic hospital in Knokke, Belgium.
The photos demonstrate a health campus set in a beautiful natural environment where the hospital design provides a stimulating and positive care setting for patients, visitors and staff.
Gunther has commented that "visiting the facility I was in a constant state of exploration and discovery. We need to encourage the stakeholders to analyze the impact and research the findings since this is an example of a build environment that promotes wellness. Located at the edge of a future golfcourse, this part of flemish countryside and seaside provides a physical context where build and natural environment blend to offer the future potential to expand and establish a true welness campus. Lets hope that both policy makers and care authorities see the value of this potential.
A special thanks to Jan De Vloed and Serge Lefevere of DETOO for offering the opportunity to visit.
My appreciations to all parties involved in accomplishing this remarkable outcome."
