The Theodor Fliedner Foundation runs workshops for the handicapped amongst other social facilities. Work there is recognised for its professionalism and of high quality.
All aspects of this building - shape, structure, facade and fit-out – are specifically designed to achieve an expression of utmost clarity and precision. As well as being a building that meets the usual functional and efficiency criteria for the 120 handicapped workers - as the brief required -, it was especially designed with the aim to avoid stigmatising them. The elegant foyer stands in deliberate contrast with the decidedly functional production hall.
