Nursing Home “Haus Heiliggeist”


The non-restorable nursing home in Herdern, part of the city of Freiburg, was replaced by a compact new building. On four floors it houses five care-groups, including 71 nursing rooms and eight age-appropriate apartments. The building is composed of two volumes, which are positioned offset to each other. Living areas, used by two of the care-groups are located at their intersection. The positioning of the two volumes creates an open entrance area on Johanniterstrasse, as well as a sheltered garden  at the south-facing facade. A spacious multi-purpose-room, including a terrace, is located close to the entrance area, opening itself towards the public space. The living spaces have been fitted with generous loggias facing the garden. Whenever light hits the leaves of the old surrounding trees, they offer a gentle atmosphere, especially during the summer months.The external appearance of the building is dominated by a light brick facade. The masonry work creates a pedestal which mirrors its built architectural context. Depending on the way the sun hits the brick, the facade can appear in various shades which gives the building its very own character and identity.
