Housing for Elderly, Köpenicker Strasse 190-193

By Steidle & Partner (Roland Sommer, Otto Steidle, Siegwart Geiger, Peter Boehm)

This doesn’t look much from outside, in fact some of the finishes are really showing their age.  But the glass-enclosed ‘winter garden’, with ramps running into the adjoining building at various levels, looks really carefully thought out.

As mentioned in the main post to this, it’s important also to consider the integration into the existing buildings and spaces; the communal gardens here are well laid out and maintained as an essential part of the overall design.
