The concept of the new clinic complex is based on the needs of patients and staff. The architect’s plan provides fast access to all specialist departments, which can thus work efficiently on an interdisciplinary basis. The new structure consists essentially of two parts – the treatment area on the left and the main building on the right where A&E department, the surgical medical centre, the outpatients’ department and the nursing sector are located.
A straight main street with clearly marked lanes for transporting patients runs between the treatment area and the main building. The individual lanes are flanked by BEGA light building elements to show the way; these also convey a dimension of the building complex when it is dark. They are unshielded with all-round light output.
To the north, the clinic building is bordered by the newly created, luxuriantly planted riverside landscape of the Glan. To the south, the open building complex borders on the treatment areas and opens up northwards in four comb-like strands.
Walkways on each floor give the open north side of the building visual support. These have external staircases, which are fitted with BEGA wall luminaires. Long, slender luminaires take up the form language of the architecture and underscore the structure of the building at night.
Short versions of the same type of luminaire are also used as emergency lighting in safety-relevant building entrances as ceiling or wall-mounted variants.
Entrance and visitors area, dining hall, underground garage and other important areas are fitted with BEGA luminaires.
