Award procedure:

The "Schwabing Hospital" has a long tradition: The hospital was already built between 1904 and 1928 according to the plans of Richard Schachner at that time on the outskirts of Munich. When it opened, the Munich-Schwabing Hospital was considered the most modern hospital in the world and is still considered one of the most exemplary hospital facilities in Germany.

As part of the redevelopment conversion decision of Städtisches Klinikum München GmbH (StKM), the administration was commissioned to develop an after-use concept for medical-related uses for the areas of the hospital sites that would become vacant. Thus, the urban development goal for the listed clinic site is also to ensure the preservation of the historically valuable existing buildings and to take innovative measures for a new use in the urban context.

Together with other companies such as Fraunhofer IAO, Stuttgart and Braun Architekten, WBRE drew up an after-use concept that aims to create space/room for apartments and daycare centers on the former clinic site in the near future. A total of 144 affordable living spaces are planned for trainees and clinic staff. The utilization concept also deals extensively with the aspect of mobility within the area. Here, the focus is on   communally usable and expandable mobility offerings, with a focus on ecological efficiency and the reduction of individual traffic. Among other things, the goal is to sensitize citizens to the topic of mobility so that they can reach their destination efficiently and in an environmentally friendly manner with the help of new multimodal offers.

In the course of this, the construction of fast-charging facilities between individual houses is planned to enable the use of sharing e-vehicles, including e-bikes. The area is also suitable in perspective as a test field for autonomously driving shuttles, which could optimally link the various areas with each other. Furthermore, a sensor-controlled parking management system will be installed, which will optimize the use of above-ground parking spaces via app and facilitate the general search for parking spaces by residents. A central mobility axis is also planned between the west entrance and the houses, which will function as an experience space for innovative mobility and, thanks to the energy-generating surface, as a further component of the outdoor facility design.

This concept is intended to make a significant contribution at the local level to achieving the 1.5-degree target and to reducing the CO2 emissions caused by the buildings. With the help of sustainable mobility as well as the use of renewable energy sources and resource efficiency, a sustainable and future-oriented health campus will be created in the Schwabing district.
