- PostBirgittas Vårdcentral(2023) Elisson, Alexandra; Waschek, Mathias; Müller-Zitzke, Paul; Chalmers tekniska högskola // Institutionen för arkitektur och samhällsbyggndsteknik; Chalmers University of Technology / Department of Architecture and Civil EngineeringThe site proposed by the community of Vadstena for a new primary care center is characterized by historical aspects such as the long tradition of healthcare facilities, topographical by several areas with different characteristics, sociological by an aging community and architecturally through clear vernacular buildings and features, present to this day. By adding a a timber top-up and extension to the existing building we believe to have accomplished a sensible and simultaneously ecologic, economic and social worthwhile transformation. Vernacular elements such as the existing brick facades, roof type and general proportions are emphasized by clearly contrasting with the light post & beam addition. The addition draws inspiration from its surroundings and interprets it for a new expression. Apart from physical changes we propose a holistic approach to healthcare that works health promoting rather than treatment focused. Apart from ecologic and economic aspects, we also included the social standpoint. By empowering the citizens to take care of all facets of their health, the facility will aid in taking strain off of the healthcare system and facilitate the change towards a more sustainable and efficient health promoting system.
- PostAPART BUT TOGETHER(2023) Machnik, Kamila; Wang, Zhaoheng; Li, Zhuoze; Chalmers tekniska högskola // Institutionen för arkitektur och samhällsbyggndsteknik; Chalmers University of Technology / Department of Architecture and Civil EngineeringVadstena Kommun is a municipality of about 7400 inhabitants in Östergötland County, in southeast Sweden. The current Primary Care Center has about 7,500 listed patients and is located in an older building that is not suitable to modern standards. Therefore, the Region is planning a new building on a new site. The project will contribute to the development of the healthcare regional system towards a "good quality, local health care", which means a modern, equitable, accessible, and effective health care, focusing on primary care. The brief of about 3000 sqm gross area includes a primary care unit, specialist outpatient clinics, public dental care and a child and family health center. The site is within the "Birgitta hospital area", a large area built for different healthcare services since the early 1900s. On the site, one building is planned to be demolished, but another heritage building could be transformed and included as part of the new Primary Care Center.
- PostVårdcentral Vadstena(2023) Feichtinger, Philipp; Jakobsson Olsson, Axel; Wieser, Michael; Chalmers tekniska högskola // Institutionen för arkitektur och samhällsbyggndsteknik; Chalmers University of Technology / Department of Architecture and Civil EngineeringOur assignment was to design a new primary care center, Vårdcentral in Swedish, for Vadstena. Vadstena is a town in Sweden’s Östergötland county, roughly 240 kilometres away from both Gothenburg and Stockholm. The town has a long history in healthcare, dating back to a medieval monastery that cared for the sick and injured, until this day, where one of Östergötland’s biggest forensic psy chiatries is located here. The current primary care centre has gotten too small by now, and did not fit the needs of a modern healthcare facility any longer. For this reason the regional healthcare authority decided to build a new primary care centre for Vadstena, on a site that also has a long history in healthcare architecture: The surrounding buildings used to be part of a big Pavillon-style hospital complex built between 1947 and 1961. These former hospital buildings however were reused over time, and today only the old primary care centre is still used as a healthcare facility.
- PostA Sense of Relief - A PROPOSAL FOR THE NEW PRIMARY CARE CENTER IN VADSTENA, SWEDEN(2023) Schultz, Linnéa; Chalmers tekniska högskola // Institutionen för arkitektur och samhällsbyggndsteknik; Chalmers University of Technology / Department of Architecture and Civil EngineeringCurrently situated in an older building, not suited to modern standards, the Primary Care Center of Vadstena will move into a new development in the near future. The proposed site is currently occupied by an older building, internally connected to a neighbouring structure beyond the plot limits. Thereby, the task has been to design a proposal for the new Primary Care Center on site and the two existing buildings, on-site and just outside. The brief of about 3000 m2 gross area includes a primary care unit, specialist outpatient clinics, dental care and a child and family health centre. The task has also included presenting a space for a possible extension of an inpatient care unit. The inpatient care unit will be outlined in the site plan but not detailed further. Today, the Primary Care Centre has almost 160 patient visits per day and about 37 daily staff, including nurses, doctors, and dentists. The project will contribute to developing the healthcare system towards “good quality, local health care”, which means modern, equitable, accessible, and effective healthcare, focusing on primary care. Additionally, the project has very high sustainability ambitions, and the design focuses on circularity, reuse, and resource efficiency.
- PostPad project period(2020) Widdgård, Thea; Ljungberg, Elin; Sköld, Sandra; Karlsson, Fredrik; Chalmers tekniska högskola // Institutionen för arkitektur och samhällsbyggndsteknik; Brandao, EmelioEven though almost half of the world population are women, menstruation is seen as a taboo in many countries around the world. In Kenya, the attendance among adolescent girls in school is decreasing, girls even drop out of school due to the limited access to sanitary products such as menstruation pads. During Reality Studio, many projects involving the sanitary pad, ZingiPad have been performed. This year the Pad Project Period was executed, the vision of the project is to make a difference for young girls in Kenya and also for the organization Zingira. Zingira is a community based organization that coordinates with local artisans to produce products from recycled and locally sourced materials. One of their products is the ZingiPad, which is sold to local schools and aims to help girls and women who can not afford to buy sanitary products. If the production would increase it would result in more girls getting access to sanitary pads. If the production of sanitary pads at Zingira would improve the income will increase, which will help the organization develop to be more impactful. To reach the aim, the project was divided into four themes, Production, Business, Material, and Education. Each theme has a different aim, which is important for reaching the main aim and purpose of the project.
