Full Description

In 2011, Zurich-based architect Fawad Kazi, together with the KSSG-OKS planning consortium, won the competition for the rebuilding and extension of St Gallen’s cantonal hospital (KSSG) and the new regional children’s hospital for eastern Switzerland (OKS). By 2028, this huge undertaking will have transformed the whole area they are built in. This building monograph, laid out in five elegant volumes, documents in much detail the ambitious project, which is a significant trailblazer in the area of hospital design and urban development.

This second volume is devoted to KSSG’s Haus 10, situated at the northern end of the site. Connected to the hospital’s main building by means of an ingenious passage, it serves to treat walk-in patients. Its flexible structure allows adaptions to suit also future needs of KSSG. The interior design is based on materials and features intended also for the other new buildings still to come.

Text in English and German.
