Nickl & Partner Architekten AG has won the 2nd prize in the restricted competition for the realisation of a new rehabilitation centre in Bayreuth.
The organiser of the competition, Deutsche Rentenversicherung Nordbayern, plans to build a new rehabilitation clinic in Bayreuth to offer treatment in a modern environment. The new building is to provide 300 beds for inpatients as well as cater for 60 day-care patients and outpatients. The patients’ needs are to play a decisive role in the design and functionality of the new building.
The design submitted by Nickl & Partner Architekten AG underlines the basic principle of equal treatment of all patients: all rooms are aligned along an elegantly curved, linear building and open to the outside. This ensures that patients cannot look into each other’s room and that all patients are given an open view of the surrounding landscape.
“All in all, a good solution for the task at hand, which is distinguished by the power and simplicity of the architectural means” (excerpt from the jury report).
