The Molengracht site is the centre for regular specialist care for Breda and surroundings, and for high-quality clinical and consultant care for the entire catchment area. The new building houses emergency and intensive medical care as well as some elective care that can be scheduled. This new, state-of-the-art hospital meets the latest requirements in terms of diagnostics, treatment and patient care.

The design meets the demand for an excellent clinical hospital with a ‘human factor’ in which small scale and patients are paramount. The different facilities will be clustered by syndrome and will each be given their own recognisable identity.


Wiegerinck works on projects in the field of health care, residential care, education and high-quality research. These are projects with a sensitive context in terms of stakeholders, schedule and technology.

We are driven by a curiosity about new possibilities. We seek out restrained architecture and collaborations based on an integration of disciplines. Our way of working is based on knowledge and asking questions and as such we create strong buildings.
