Kinderhaus Luftikus

Kinderhaus Luftikus

Project Description

What is it like to be deprived of breathing space, to be – literally – dependent on medical technology and permanent care in order to survive?

The registered charity Luftikus e.V. set itself the task of creating suitable living quarters and recreational facilities for children and adolescents who need artificial respiration. Social commitment and passion have transformed a former ski factory into a beautifully situated home from home for young ventilated patients.

Instead of Black Forest romanticism there’s close attention to detail in airy residential and therapy rooms. A place for 10 children, free from a clinical atmosphere, but with space for care, support and regeneration for parents in holiday apartments. With the help of numerous sponsors it was possible to equip the (re)construction with high-quality materials and optimal lighting. The aim of the interior planning: to provide a strong contrast to the medical equipment. An extraordinary care facility.
