Elderly Home Sonnengarten, Hombrechtikon (Switzerland)

Sonnengarten, home for the elderly, offers generous housing 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. A rich and cultural offer of courses stimulates their 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 four person room per department, surrounding big common rooms.

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