Demenzpavilion Sonnengarten – Pavilion for people with Alzheimers disease

Sonnengarten elderly home offers generous housing for the elderly for about 100 people. It is a place for personal life in old age on the outskirts of Hombrechtikon in the Zurich Oberland, with views of the Glarus Alps, in the midst of a near-natural landscaped park and garden. The wider surroundings with the Lützelsee and a magnificent natural park invite you to impressive walks.

We designed the expansion for seniors suffering from dementia, called Demenzpavilion Sonnengarten. A rich (cultural) offer of courses stimulates the own creative activity. The kitchen makes for a healthy and varied diet on biodynamic basis.

The two pavilions each consist of ten single rooms and one 4 person room per department, surrounding big common rooms.

Official opening is planned in October 2016.

Total area: 3.130 m² (2.145 m² +  985 m² basement)
