Built on the edge of Zuiderpark, the largest park of the post-war district Apeldoorn-Zuid, this building is part of a larger centre of community facilities. It is the nuclear of a major urban and social renewal program for the whole district.
GOED stands for: Gezondheid Onder Een dak which means 'healthcare under one roof'. The program is however much broader and consist of a health centre (general physicians, physiotherapists, dentists, pharmacy etc), nursing point, social services, fitness, elderly day-care centre, nursing home for psycho-geriatric patients and 36 apartments.
The building itself is divided in two main U-form blocks. The U form floor plans (which alternate their position every floor) create openings between the park and the green inner courtyards. The block's fašades are made of elegant brickwork with aluminium accents. This horizontal, robust and strenuously designed fašade is topped by a four story high apartments tower cover totally with glass.
