Two recognitions in the Ortenau-Klinikum Offenburg competition

HPP, in collaboration with White Arkitekter, GREENBOX Landschaftsarchitekten and Knippers Helbig, was awarded a recognition for both the urban design idea and the architectural realisation parts of the Ortenau-Klinikum Offenburg competition.

In terms of urban planning, the design is highly connected to the existing urban and landscape setting due to its campus character, the appropriate height development and a clear arrangement in the base area. A linear central link through all buildings forms the backbone of the building and connects all main access cores as well as control centres and waiting areas together. This clear internal structure creates short distances and easy orientation in the building. Generous voids, open staircases, setbacks and atriums create connected, bright and open areas with a strong reference to the green outdoor space. Due to the vertical layering of functions with all functional areas in the two-storey base zone and the nursing pavilions above, the view from the patients' rooms opens to the Black Forest and the Vosges Mountains. Dense roof gardens on the base building reinforce the reference to the landscape and create atmospheric recreational areas in the outdoor space.
