Nickl & Partner Architekten AG has won third prize in a competition for the new retirement home and senior care facility in Wels, Austria, Hans-Sachs-Strasse 1.
The competition was tendered as a restricted design competition. Eleven out of altogether twelve projects were permitted to enter the assessment. Nickl & Partner Architekten’s design was praised in particular in light of its urbanity, “characterised by the incorporation of the streetscape on the eastern side with the diagonally positioned wing of the building and by the quiet, well-proportioned interior courtyard” (extract from the jury’s protocol). The architectural contribution of the façade design was also rated highly.
