Construction of a new geriatric psychiatry center (GPZ),
Sächsiches Krankenhaus, Großschweidnitz
To accommodate the layout of the campus and the surrounding listed buildings, RDS developed a nursing building with two wings, but closely integrated. The two pavilion-like buildings are vertically and horizontally tiered to each other and follow the contours of the terrain. The compact arrangement of the buildings enables efficient operation of the building. The geriatric psychiatry center includes two closed geriatric psychiatry units, each with 20 beds, two closed addiction treatment units each with 20 beds, one unit for acute addiction-related admissions and the other for after-treatment care as well as an outpatient clinic with room for 20 patients.
