More and more local hospitals in Belgium are merging in order to increase efficiency. In Ieper this resulted in the creation of the Jan Yperman Hospital, with some 1000 beds and roughly the same number of staff. As part of this major project Bulvano was entrusted with implementing the office, conference and general seating furniture. Quality, maintenance-friendly, ergonomics, sustainability and ‘homely’ were imperatives. The client also required conceptual brainstorming with the architect.
