Design and construction of a senior care home — Am Rathaus 3, 93080 Pentling, Germany — 4,880 m² — IB Internationaler Bund

One with the environment

With its architecture for Haus Benedikt, blocher partners brings out the quality of this senior care facility, now in its fourth generation. The sense of security begins with the first impression: The building is set into a hillside and fits in with Pentling's rural identity.

Its division into four buildings transmits the visual impression of an ensemble: The elements flow seamlessly together through partially transparent connections. In addition, local traditional design features are used. All the facilities of the nursing home community are easily reachable by foot from the new community centre. The main entrance on the ground floor faces the main city square. The facility's integration into the community is supported by its cafeteria with kiosk, which is just off the entrance foyer and is a meeting place for residents and guests.
