Isala clinic - REINÆRDT doors

More than 5,000 REINÆRDT bamboo doors have been placed in the Isala clinic in Zwolle. The idea of the architects was to design a better-house, rather than a hospital. The organic architecture and the green area should accelerate the healing process of patients.

"After years of testing with respect to strength, flexibility, dimensional stability and fire safety, we have gained more than enough confidence in the material to make a full switch to bamboo. We have received many positive responses from the market about our move; Architects appreciate the special look of bamboo as well as the excellent performance on sustainability." Chris Hendriks, director of REINÆRDT Doors
