Osar asked Specht to create a pattern for the fence around the Stuivenberg Hospital, a complex renovation project.
The hospital focuses solely on psychiatric patients. The fence needed to have different transparencies, depending on the needs of the patients.
For example: the most troubled patients required a less transparent perforating, with less contact with the outside world, while the less troubled patients should be able to experience more of what was happening on the street.
Specht worked together with The End Architecture to create the pattern.
