New Urban Centre
Rheinstetten / Germany

Urban Design Concept

The residential and nursing home is to be located at the eastern edge of the new urban district and is a prelude to the new urban centre of Rheinstetten. Importantly the new building is intended to serve as a noise barrier, sheltering the residential area immediately to the west. For this reason, the building will also bridge over the main access road. The nursing home includes a range of day-care facilities which will benefit from natural synergies with supervised senior citizen housing. This combination of semi-public uses is highly suited to this entrance situation of the new urban district and, once completed, will provide a distinctive urban gateway.

The architectural concept for the new building foresees a "hard clear edge" addressing the noise of the street in the north-east, contrasted by the projections and recesses of a "soft edge" facing onto the small-scale residential development to the south-west. Thereby the building form is a direct architectural response to local conditions. Projecting floors and balconies provide a passive means of shading for the underlying south-west orientated facades. To the street box windows afford the demanded levels of sound insulation and provide a rhythm within the horizontally arranged façade. These are complimented vertical openings providing natural light to the staircases. The different uses are clearly legible; visually structure the building.

Usage

The ASB (Arbeiter-Samariter-Bund) is to build a new social institution:

  1. A nursing home for senior citizens, housing 90 people in single rooms and divided into 6 distinct residential groups.
  2. A day-care centre for senior citizens providing facilities for up to 15 people.
  3. 30 supervised apartments for a mix of senior citizens and disabled people.

This program has been developed in order to meet the specific nursing home requirements in Rheinstetten with 30% of the building to be provided as subsidized housing. Services offered take advantage of natural synergies between the different uses and result in compact efficient planning. The facility will be planned according to the latest developments in long-term care. An attractive architecture and light-filled interiors are intended to significantly promote the well-being of both the residents, out-patients and visitors alike. The internal organization will include 6 small communities, each for up to 15 residents. Each of the modern single rooms will be provided with disability code compliant bathrooms. Out-patient areas can be accessed separately.

Energy Concept and Sustainability

The proposed concept focuses on energy efficiency and maximum use of renewable energy. Increased energy code targets of the EnEV are to be implemented. The planned construction will ensure low transmission heat losses, and substantially reduced operational costs. Our aim is to minimizing primary energy use while ensuring high levels of thermal comfort in the respective areas of the building. Decentralized technical systems are to be optimally sized, reducing risk of redundancy. In order to achieve healthy living and working conditions, only carefully selected and low-emission certified building materials are used. The material selection both for construction work and landscaping is to be based on wide-ranging ecological criteria, such as a low quantity of gray energy and environmentally safe disposal. Throughout priority is to be given to functionality. The building envelope comprises high performance thermally insulated components, thus avoiding thermal bridging. The building is connected to the existing district heating network for heat supply. The solar thermal system is to supply both the heating system and heating of water for domestic use. The controlled use of solar gains reduces the heat requirement in both the apartments and patient rooms.

Boris Rüther

Architekt, Assoziierter

Boris begann sein Studium im schwäbischen Biberach (DE). Nach Zwischenstopps in Luzern (CH) und Berlin (DE) absolvierte er an der Staatlichen Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Stuttgart (DE) den Master of Arts.


Neben der Planung und dem Mitwirken beim Umbau des CAD-labs an der Kunstakademie, engagierte sich Boris während seines Studiums auch an der Planung und Realisierung der Ausstellungsskulptur für die 250-jährige Jubiläumsausstellung „Voila" in der Staatsgalerie Stuttgart. In den Architekturbüros HASCHER JEHLE Architektur, Berlin und Kauffmann Theilig & Partner, Stuttgart sammelte Boris Praxiserfahrung.


Nach dem Studium hat Boris das neu gegründete STUDIO2050 fasziniert. Hier arbeitete er an Wettbewerben wie der Erweiterung des Mercedes Benz Campus in Stuttgart und dem Guggenheim Museum in Helsinki, Finnland. Das Empfangsgebäude der Firma Schmalz in Glatten (DE) war sein erstes realisiertes Hochbau-Projekt, auf das er nicht nur wegen der Auszeichnung "Beispielhaftes Bauen“ der Architektenkammer stolz sein kann.


Boris betreut derzeit den Bau der Radstation in Tübingen sowie das Stampflehmhaus in Heilbronn.

Mercedes-Benz Campus

Mercedes-Benz Campus

The Mercedes-Benz Campus is intended as the crowning element of Stuttgart’s Neckarpark. “High Tech – High Nature”. What better symbolizes a worthwhile future? The lake in the centre of the campus serves as an energy engine; its role is to help in making aspects of renewable energy understandable. With the "Wave" and other public activities, the visitor himself is encouraged to be part of the spectacle. We have the responsibility for shaping our future ourselves! Both the Campus and the Future Center therefore do not focus on objects, but on people; their movement, their behaviour and their ambitions, people undertaking research, experimenting and sharing their experience in striving to develop a better future.
