City of Karlsruhe Medical Centre : new buildings forming part of the “Klinikum 2015” plan The architects von Gerkan, Marg and Partners have won first prize with their design for the new buildings of the Karlsruhe Medical Centre. The competition focused on the 2015 master plan and was open to 15 selected practices.

The briefing called for the construction of a new central building in order to give more structure to the hospital precinct – which consists of older buildings from the nineteenth century as well as later additions – and to improve the logistics of the Centre by constructing a new central catering facility and new institute buildings. According to the jury, gmp’s design fits particularly well with the existing buildings of the hospital precinct, while at the same time meeting all functional requirements.

The central building, called “Haus M”, creates a new focal point for the hospital precinct. It contains 24 operating theatres, intensive care units, rooms for medical and functional services, the new central sterilisation unit as well as wards, providing a total net floor space of 20,500 square metres. Together with the buildings for the new central catering facility and the institute building, the total project area measures 27,500 square metres.
