The design schedules a "house-in-house system": By emballishing the group of rooms as single detached buildings in different colours, the attempt to avoid a hospital-like character is made. A "vertical landscape" emerges, the rooms are interpretated as "houses" (with looking relationships to the inside and outside), and the aisles are interpretated as light-flooded "streets" and "courts". The recognition of the rooms is facilitated through the colourfulness. Windows facing to the transition area enable the patients to attend in the station live.
