Jakob Sigle Home in Kornwestheim

The X-shaped footprint of the nursing home is a response to the offset alignment of the side streets that lead up to the edges of the property. The configuration creates a striking spatial setting that forms two protected spaces: an entry court and a garden courtyard. The residents’ rooms benefit from the angled bay windows that jut outwards. Not only do they offer more usable space, they also reinforce the spatial and atmospheric impact inside and protrude vividly from the facade.


The first construction phase involved building a new nursing home for 92 residents after carrying out partial demolition of the existing nursing home. The ground floor of the new building accommodates service facilities such as daytime care, an occupational therapy practice, and outpatient nursing. On the three upper floors are the shared accommodations for six residential groups.

The second construction phase, which involved a building for assisted living that comprises 73 rental apartments for seniors and 2 staff apartments, began immediately after the nursing home was completed.
