Only a red-brown sliding door installation and a matching coloured door panel hint at the new use of rooms behind the old street-facing wall, the last relic of a building that was pulled down decades ago. The doctor’s practice can be found at ground level, enclosed between multi-storey firewalls. A kinked concrete belt leads from the gate to the paved main entrance area with a cantilevering concrete roof slab and a solid, red-brown entrance door. The practice is otherwise embedded in gravel. “Understatement” would be a good word to describe the exterior. The interior offers a complete contrast: a reddish panel wall, over 25 metres long, with a skylight along the entire length forms the dominant backbone of the external areas of the doctor’s practice. The examination rooms, the therapy rooms and the lab on the other hand, have been designed in neutral colours. A system of glass and sliding panel doors separates the practice rooms from the waiting area. The choice of materials and surfaces, their colours and structures are reflective of the barrier-free building plan, the hygiene regulations and the restricted budget. The entrance roof fell victim to the necessity of cost saving. On the one hand, it would have provided a sheltered doctor’s parking space in case of emergencies and, on the other, would have divided the outdoor space into three small areas: the entrance yard, the terrace of the waiting area and – the only feature that was achieved – the private yard.
