The Hamburg-Hummelsbüttel retirement home is a new build in a conventional design with 55 residential units for sheltered living.

A lavish glass front shaded by large trees with a width of approx. 18 m and stretching over four storeys with an inwardly curving segment in the middle was constructed for the entrance area. This façade was constructed using vinyl segments rather than aluminium to take advantage of the excellent heat insulation values and low cost of PVC.
