Veronica House - Elderly Care Facility

f m b architekten – Binder & Mayer as Architects

In the new residential community of the Veronica House, the site for the project is compact. The structure allows the urban transition from the relatively high house No. 47, the former Veronica clinic, to the lower elevation of the southern adjoining residential building.


The ground floor is composed of a public café, a divisible meeting room, a quiet room, and all staff rooms. The administration of the national carrier has taken a room in the attic. In between these two floors lie the three residential floors with apartments and a community house on each floor, each with twelve beds.


The internal structure corresponds to the model of elderly care in home communities. To implement this ideal many things were considered with the design of the building. None of the apartments are oriented to the north, and a large kitchen serves as a versatile place to meet and linger. The kitchen is oriented to the south, facing the garden and the shared terrace. To allow flexibility for future spatial changes, the building was a reinforced with a concrete frame with nearly every wall of the expansion as a non-supporting, lightweight partitions.
