HOSPIZ IM PARK is a clinic with a public mandate for palliative care. There are 10 rooms available for 10 patients. People suffering from a progressive, incurable disease are treated, cared for and accompanied by a multidisciplinary, interprofessional team.
The Hospice in the Park is an independent foundation. The primary goal is to maintain the best possible quality of life until the end, taking into account psychosocial, cultural and spiritual aspects.
The new office and practice building, designed as a simple and uniform structure, stands on the northern boundary of the plot and shields the existing park from its neighbours. The curved south façade allows the building to merge with the contours of the park. Thanks to its materialisation and dimensions, the construction is clearly subordinate to the main house, but creates an atmospheric outdoor space together with it.
The façades and the roof covering of the hospice, which were produced as prefabricated timber frame elements, are clad with natural larch wood shingles. The spatial layout consists of offices for administration, a doctor's practice and a multi-purpose hall that can be used for seminars and various events.
