Grand Vision, business model and floorplan
ZNA gave Healthskouts the mandate to design a Grand Vision, business model and floorplan for the ground level, formerly the ‘care boulevard’, in rising ZNA Cadix, the novel hospital landmark by Hospital Network Antwerp (ZNA).
A great vision is a call for action, invention, and innovation.
