Even from afar, the free-standing five-storey building with its red colour is a real eye-catcher. The almost round floor plan is made up of two semicircular building sections. They are arranged around the central atrium, which is flooded with natural light by a cylindrical glass element.

This contemporary building complex covering an area of approx. 7,500 m2 houses 27 specialist medical practices, an outpatient rehabilitation clinic for psychosomatic illnesses and two laboratories. All the practice entrances are centrally arranged off the round atrium. The four circular galleries rising up above the atrium symbolise the comprehensive and integrated range of treatments and therapies on offer.

From Bauhaus to solar house

This residence in Oberkotzau is the first building in High Franconia to be built according to the solar house standard. The building architecture follows the principle "form follows energy" and is in perfect harmony with the solar energy concept. A 70° slanted roof with 70 m2 of solar panels faces south to capture the greatest amount of low winter sun and convert it into heat.
