Vincentinum Health Center in Augsburg

In our design, the new building’s robust, U-shaped form complements the dominant historical building. By adopting the use of brick, a strong material, the health center with its roughly mortared joints is given a powerful radiance of its own, and it enters a dialogue with the exposed brick facades of the old main hospital.


The precise, deep window reveals emphasize the physicality of the sustainable and seemingly timeless new building. The new building for the Vincentinum Health Center was built as an annex to the old main hospital, which was built in the neo-Gothic style in 1859 and was refurbished and converted renovated between 2009 and 2012 according to our plans. The U-shaped new building of the health center directly adjoins the existing old main hospital and replaces its former east wing, which had been added in the early 1950s.

While a Montessori children’s home and the state’s institute for training specialized teachers are located in the old main hospital, the new building houses the surgical center, various practices, and the outpatient clinic, as well as the radiology, surgery, and rheumatology departments.
