Elternhaus Kinderhilfe Dresden

In the direct vicinity of the university clinic, the new “Teddy Bear” parent house with 13 flats was built in 2008.

While their children are in treatment at the clinic, the flats are available as a temporary home for the families and a place where they can retreat.

Situated to the southeast of the clinic, the four-storey cube closes a gap in the grounds. Designed by the architect’s office zanderachitekten, the building is adapted to the other structures typical of that part of the city. The simple cubage of the light plastered building is interspersed with large openings, which are offset to create a striking façade. Deep jambs additionally accent the opening contours of the perforated façade.

The interior is dominated by clear structures, bright colours and natural materials. Visitors enter the building through the entrance located on the south side. In addition to a small office, the ground floor accommodates one flat and a large day room. The three upper floors, each with four identical units, function exclusively as living areas. The flats, each with an area of about 30 square metres, have a combined living room/bedroom, a kitchen niche and a separate shower bath.

Technology with low environmental impact was used to save energy. Due to the fluctuating utilisation of the building, the room heating and hot water heating were designed as separate systems. The foundation soil offers good conditions for the use of geothermal heat, which is now extracted by means of five boreholes from a depth of up to 100 metres. The energy is harnessed by a Vaillant geoTHERM geothermal pump. This is sufficient to supply the 700 square metres of living and utility space via a buffer tank. To optimise utilisation of piping and avoid microbial contamination, the hot water heating was intentionally designed as a decentral.
