Baumschlager Eberle Architekten take one of two first prizes

Together with partner firm Christian Bauer & Associés, Baumschlager Eberle Architects have taken one of two first prizes awarded in the project competition for the extension of Kirchberg Hospital in Luxembourg.


With this new extension, the Robert Schumann Hospitals Foundation is readying both its premises and its service provision for the future on the existing site. Its commitment to the location is shown in a distinctive, iconic building featuring high-rise elements and a public ground-floor development designed on a human scale, both of which fit perfectly into the local neighbourhood. 


The complex comprises various day units, a small operating theatre and elderly care and geriatric wards (22,900m2) alongside a business hotel with spa (10,400m2) which provides flexibility and space for the hospital’s future development. 


The competition drew entries from six teams in total, with the other first prize going to local architecture firm Atelier d’Architecture et Design Jim Clemens AG and their hospital design partner Sander Hofrichter Architekten GmbH. 


An exhibition showcasing the projects opens on 18 July 2018 at Paul Wurth S.A., rue Alsace 32, Luxembourg City and is open for visits by appointment.
