Eik nursing home is located in a rural forested area outside the town of Tønsberg.

The main aim has been to provide homely residential surroundings for patients suffering from dementia, avoiding the institutional character of many nursing facilities. The pavilion orginisation separates the residential units with small planted courtyards. The new residential buildings, each with eight rooms, are entered from a new central, roof lit hub containing administration, treatment centre, day facilities and a central foyer.
