The world of the mentally ill is located somewhere between sane and insane,
fluctuating between depression, insomnia, rage and utter joy.
A positive attitude towards it is here taken. Inside of the building is a dream,
of which one is able to wake up to sanity.
The Mental Health Centre is based on the outpatient care,
sharing additional functions like the gym, the library and the workshops.
The building thus becomes a vast mixture of different mental states.
It is a retreat as well as a place for interaction.
It is a two-way bridge in and out of the world of the mentally ill.
