Construction period: 2015-2016
Area: 3.224 m²

A cross-generational housing and utilisation concept has been created with the subsequent use of empty areas in a WBS-70-type prefabricated building in the residential area of Altenburg Nord and the involvement of people from all age groups. The task was the development of a coherent and functional living concept for the conversion with full barrier-free and wheelchair-accessible movement spaces. This includes the merger into one unit of two sheltered housing units with outpatient care and several service apartments for seniors along with the existing nursery "Zwergenland". The nursery and a meeting room for seniors in the ground floor and basement remained in operation during the construction measures.
