“Our intention is to develop modern buildings with a positive influence on the people who work and live there.”
University clinics and hospitals, research and teaching buildings as well as structural urban planning: these are the types of projects for which the architecture firm Nickl & Partner has become known. Hans Nickl and Christine Nickl-Weller understand the process of building for the healthcare sector as a mission that confers great responsibility and demands a serious-minded approach. That said, their buildings have also won widespread praise for their pleasant and cheerful ambience. Thanks to a creative use of materials, distinctive spatial structures and technical efficiency they have repeatedly succeeded in striking the right balance between comfort and functionality. This monograph features buildings, projects and competition entries by Nickl & Partner presented within the context of reflections on the key principles underlying contemporary hospital planning.
