With the restructuring and service expansion of the Favoriten Clinic, a central building for a new central emergency room, the departments of cardiology, internal medicine, neurology as well as pulmonology is to be built in place of the outdated pavilion structure. F+P ARCHITEKTEN are in charge as general planner.
Architects Collective, F+P Architects and SWAP Architecture are pooling their expertise across projects to create a leading Healthcare Architecture cooperation.
First place! SWAP Architektur won the competition for the new laboratory building "House 7" of the Robert Koch Institute in Berlin.
We set two thematic priorities in our design:
On the one hand, we wanted to construct a building that allows the greatest possible flexibility, because laboratory buildings must be able to adapt to constantly changing requirements. The second focus in the architectural concept lies in the treatment and quality of the communicative areas, as communication plays a central role in science and research.
Join the discussion! Live talk on October 5: How and where do we plan living spaces for people with care needs? The need for places and spaces where people can be cared for and nurtured in an ethical, health-promoting and affordable way, and thus live self-determined lives and participate in the midst of society, will grow rapidly and massively in the coming years. This societal challenge needs sensitive and forward-looking architecture and planning - with smart common sense and in a multidisciplinary setting that calls on the expertise and solidarity of all stakeholders from politics, health and care systems to architecture.
