The new volume “Medical Practices” shows exemplary examples of architecture and interior design in the healthcare sector. With no less than three projects by brandherm + krumrey, he presents contemporary practice spaces from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The comprehensive publication is introduced with a contribution on the general prerequisites and the history of the building type. Over 500 photographs and plans illustrate the selected projects. Accompanying texts explain how the individual conditions in each case led to unique solutions by way of example.
First and foremost, a modern practice must meet functional requirements. In addition, the variety of possibilities in this new publication becomes clear. Extended requirements may include a special ambience that appeals to the patient group, a specific floor plan solution that results from the therapy in question, or exceptional scenography in the waiting area. This is illustrated by three examples from brandherm + krumrey: the Förster-Marenbach orthodontic practice in Cologne, the blood donor room on the university campus in Hamburg, and the Kardimed cardiology practice in Cologne’s Media Park.
