Nickl & Partner Architekten have successfully participated in the Europe-wide architectural competition for the construction of the new Zentralklinikum Georgsheil – a new central clinic in Georgsheil for the clinics Aurich, Emden and Norden in the district of Aurich – and received the second prize.
The focus was on high-quality care geared to the needs of patients in East Frisia. In line with its overriding guiding principle “Allthoop – all together”, the new clinic was to concentrate and pool medical services in eight different functional centres at a central location in the middle of East Frisia.
Our design wants to strengthen the East Frisian sense of community by creating an identity-giving new building in this structurally sensitive place. In order to achieve this, the design takes up the special conditions of the surrounding landscape: the fields and pastures as well as the villages and rural communities. In the minutes of the jury meeting, it is praised that the creator understands how to “transfer the essence of the East Frisian cultural landscape into a differentiated, modestly designed garden ensemble”.
We are happy about the 2nd prize!
