Vincentinum Health Center in Augsburg

In our design, the new building complements the dominant old building with a robust, U-shaped cubature. The resumption of the solid brick material gives the roughly mortared health center a very powerful charisma of its own and enters into a dialogue with the bright brick facades of the old main hospital.


The clearly set, deep window reveals emphasise the physicality of the seemingly sustainable and timeless new building. The new building of the Vincentinum Health Center was constructed as an extension to the Old Main Hospital, which was built in the neo-Gothic style in 1859 and was renovated and rebuilt between 2009 and 2012 according to our plans. The U-shaped new building of the health centre directly adjoins the existing Old Main Hospital and replaces its former east wing, which had been retrofitted at the beginning of the 1950s.

While the State Institute for the Training of Specialist Teachers and the Montessori Children's Home are located in the Old Main Hospital, the new building houses the operating theatre center, various practices, the day clinic, radiology, surgery and rheumatology.
