Irmgardisstift Nursing Care Home

LIVING

This draft will add an atrium expansion to the Irmgardisstift nursing care home. It will integrate the park into the facilities. The new building will expand the listed care home in consideration of the local conditions. In structure and design, the atrium building is inspired by the old building without attempting to compete with it.
The nursing care home is an object situated in the park and incorporated into its landscape. It is playfully surrounded by the park, which extends into the atrium.

This sends a clear signal for communication with the environment. Each of the individual, overlapping buildings will consolidate a compact number of rooms into a residential community. With its four-storey configuration, the expansion will take the existing structures into consideration and stand subordinate to the dominating old building. A spacious entrance hall will provide access to the nursing care home and establish a link between the old and the new building.
