01 AACHEN EX­PAN­SION PROJECT

Identity - - ANTENNAE -

HENN and C.F. Møller Ar­chi­tects have jointly won an in­ter­na­tional com­pe­ti­tion to ex­tend Ger­many’s most iconic hos­pi­tal com­plex, the listed 1970s high-tech Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal RWTH Aachen. The com­plex is to be ex­panded with a new build­ing con­tain­ing a cen­tral surgery area, in­clud­ing in­ten­sive care units ac­com­mo­dat­ing 50 beds, four surgery units, a day clinic, ser­vice unit and a new pub­lic en­trance hall. Large el­e­ments of the 35,000-square me­tre de­sign will be un­der­ground, min­imis­ing the vis­ual impact on an ex­ist­ing listed build­ing, and cov­ered by green park­land which will be open to the pub­lic and staff.
