Healing Architecture: New Stationary Ward at Waldkliniken Eisenberg
The small city of Eisenberg in Thuringia is home to Germany’s largest orthopaedic centre. Matteo Thun and HDR Architekten have built a new stationary ward for the local Waldkliniken hospital. It demonstrates that criteria such as innovative, sustainable, design-oriented and patient-friendly are by no means mutually exclusive.
