Construction of a residential home for Lebenshilfe Lemgo e.V. in Lemgo, Wiesengrund 2
The existing preliminary design for the floor plan of the residential home for disabled people was taken as a basis for the further planning.
The areas granted by the Landschaftsverband Westfalen-Lippe (LWL) were to be taken over for this purpose. However, the exterior design of the three-story building complex was completely revised.
A Lebenshilfe residential facility for people with disabilities was built in the center of the Wilmersiek neighborhood. The location offers a good infrastructure for the residents and caregivers.
The cubature of the building consists of basement, ground and second floor.
The residence offers living space for 18 people with handicap. Two people live in a training apartment with separate access.
The building frames a garden area with terraces facing away from the street. The facade comes alive with projecting and receding surfaces in which the materials clinker and plaster surfaces alternate and thus shape the aesthetics of the building. The materials chosen are intended to create a "feel-good" atmosphere for the residents.
An emphasis of the horizontal lines is brought about by parapet elements made of stainless steel and by protruding clinker strips. These design elements were arranged in such a way that an emphasis of the building edges is achieved and the facade levels are connected with each other.
