University Medical Center UMCG

Groningen – Between the originally separated buildings of the University Medical Center in Groningen a covered network of inner streets has been created with recognizable patios and squares. Creating a strong connection to what once was a divided campus.

City in the city
The covered inner streets with recognizable patios and squares have been built between the originally separate buildings of the University Medical Center in Groningen. This creates a clear structure with an indoor climate, while daylight can still come everywhere. A central recognizable reception hall connects these inner streets. Shops, a supermarket, terraces, restaurants and cafes prevent the medical appearance, so that local residents are encouraged to use these functions. This is emphasized by lots of greenery, warm colors and art. You can rightly say that a city has been created in the city.
