Health Centre

The Neuruppin Health Service offers a wide range of medical support for the region. Aldstudios was asked to take part in a limited competition for the new housing of the section for physiotherapeutic treatment and sports.

The setting of the building is a rather neutral piece of land between housing blocks of the 70ies and the historic hospital with its beautiful old buildings from the 19th century. In our concept the building is organized along a central avenue with courtyards on both sides bringing natural light into a colourful inner space.

In cooperation with artists each courtyard differs in character with themes like body and movement or the rich play of water in nature, creating a place full of new experiences for the patients, an inspiring background for the therapeutic bodywork. The courtyards extend into the surrounding landscape, creating a relation between the otherwise more closed and private building and its setting.
