Kirsten Mariehjemmet

More of a home than an institution:
That was the objective put forward when “Kirsten Mariehjemmet” was planned and designed, a communal housing unit for mentally handicapped adults. The intention was to create a safe and homely place for people with distressed minds and one which could also function as a halfway house, providing company for those who wished to live in their own homes and a gentle transition from institutionalised life to independence.
