Simplicity and sobriety

After the war, this retirement home was expanded by the Stichting Protestants Tehuis in Sluis. At that time, Dutch society was still strongly influenced by different religious denominations, a situation that continued into the 1960s. Like many other retirement homes from this period, it exudes simplicity and sobriety. Communal spaces, such as a coffee room, dining room and kitchen were typical features of accommodation for the elderly in this period. The design also includes infirmaries, one for women and one for men. The simplicity is expressed in the extension, which includes a few double rooms and many single rooms. They are arranged in rows, over two floors.
