Sanatorium Zonnestraal

Jan Duiker (The Hague 1890-1935 Amsterdam) was one of the leading exponents of the ‘Nieuwe Bouwen’ in the Netherlands.

The ‘Sanatorium Zonnestraal’ of 1928 in Hilversum (with B. Bijvoet) took its function as a starting point. It was to be built for the after- care of diamond- grinders who contracted tuberculosis. Open air- filled rooms were built by constructing a skeletal frame that creates open spaces, abandoning supporting walls. The ‘Openluchtschool’, Amsterdam of 1929 is of a similar design creating room- sized balconies placed in front of the classrooms. The balconies were to reflect that healthy children needed fresh air.
