Südstadt Hospital, Rostock
Environmentally-friendly modernisation of a hospital

This Rostock hospital, built in the 1960s, was no longer able to meet the typical demands on a modern hospital, and did not adequately support the integration of new medical fields. The outdated room layout and a constant shortage of space resulted in uneconomical hospital operations. Structural condition, technical building equipment and a changed hospital logistics system all necessitated extensive structural modifications. The modernisation project included the complete reconstruction of the existing ward and treatment building and the construction of a new building to house operating theatres and the functional diagnostics department. A particular challenge was presented by the need to undertake the work economically without interrupting hospital operations. Another notable feature was the integration of solar energy equipment in the hospital’s energy supply system.
