The design for the campus site in the Grombühl district envisages a considerate, structural integration into the existing health campus and its further development into a green health landscape.
The conscious decision for a cluster-like development structure ensures that the new buildings are seamlessly embedded into the slope and the landscape. The two clinics are combined to a single complex with a representative reception area and shared use of higher-level functions such as operating theatre and service areas, but retain their separate identities.
In addition, the methodical composition of the building complex creates clear references and links to the surrounding park landscapes. The interplay of penetrating open spaces and urban built up structures is enhanced by the incorporation of a spacious green square with several terraces and recreational areas, which at the same time forms the centre of the building complex.
The aspiration of Nickl & Partner Architekten’s design for sustainable hospital operations was to create a liveable, health-oriented hospital environment for patients, relatives and staff. The transparent building envelope facing the inner courtyards directs daylight deep into the building, creating a bright, friendly atmosphere. Lower parapets in the patient rooms provide a generous view of the landscape and the valley surrounding the hospital.
In addition to extensive green spaces and intensive greening of horizontal building parts, the design uses natural, local materials for the building envelope and proposes mineral façade cladding in the plinth area and wood from sustainable forestry as façade material for the upper floors.
The entire usable area of 29,500 sqm is characterised by a flexible basic structure and a modular design that allows a high degree of flexibility in the use and configuration of the space.
