The new Martini-Clinic is a self-confident, yet restrained, solitaire, which enters into dialogue with the environment and thus perfectly fits into the Eppendorf university campus. The newly created access area broadens the existing park and creates a meeting and communication place. The two-story main entrance, located at the park side, cordially receives patients and visitors alike.
Confident clinker brick
The characteristic element of the building, the clinker brick, is an important part of the grown identity of the city of Hamburg and – in particular – of the campus. The heterogeneous structure of the proposed brick façade and the functional and creative zoning of the outer shell enable an exciting dialogue with the neighboring buildings. In addition, the vibrant impression of the building, which comes from the diverse cast of shadows produced, is being intensified through the depths of the façades.
Regardless of the size of the building, attention is paid to keeping the human scale clearly in mind. The functional interior of the clinic is enriched with numerous informal meeting places, waiting areas, terraces and viewpoints. In the nursing rooms, floor-to-ceiling opening panels with glass railing enable light-flooded rooms.
