Open for new ideas and with Bauhaus associations in mind, the client approached the VON M offices. Regarding a clear design line and bright rooms, the concept fully met the requirements for the design principles of classic modern architecture. In accordance with the practice’s main area, this approach was combined with inspirations derived from the skin’s structure. The skin’s cell structure served as model for both the design vocabulary and the colour concept. The practice is accommodated in the new medical centre of Diakonie-Klinikum Stuttgart. In order to be able to use the practice as efficiently as possible, the architects opted for an inner functional core with a laboratory and toilettes. The reception counter, the waiting room and the treatment rooms are arranged around this core. A muted colour range generates a calming atmosphere, and all technical details were consistently concealed. The most striking design element is the recurrent hexagon motif. The core, for example, is finished with a spruce wood cladding with a CNC-milled surface showing this pattern. Matching furniture and fixtures round off the harmonious overall concept, which awakens associations with nature.
