Our building for the Biological Institutes of the Universität Regensburg was awarded at this year's Regensburg Architecture Prize with a recognition in the field of educational buildings.

The buildings of the natural sciences were built by Heinle, Wischer und Partner in the years 1968-1975. In 2014 they were expanded by a new building for the Department of Biology. From the outside, the new building represents a modular expansion of the existing building structure: like the existing building, the three-story ensemble is structured by a sequence of inner courtyards and connecting paths. 
A modern laboratory landscape with high variability of the laboratory layouts has been planned for university research, so that the partially very different requirements of the chairs could be met without structural differentiation.

Together with the Vivantes Network for Health, Heinle, Wischer und Partner are looking forward to the symbolic ground-breaking for the "Nordkopf" at the Vivantes Klinikum Neukölln. The new building will expand the existing main building and should be completed by 2024.

The Vivantes Klinikum Neukölln is the largest municipal hospital in Berlin and supplies a catchment area with 600,000 inhabitants in the south of the city. The construction project is a milestone for the Vivantes Group and will in particular also enable the urgently needed enlargement of the accident and emergency department.

From the street level you will get directly to the new large A&E department for adults and children. The remaining four levels are housing an operating wing with 16 operating rooms, functional diagnostics for cardiology and endoscopy, an intensive care unit for 28 patients, regular care units with a total of 240 beds and a helipad.

For several years there has been a lively exchange between Heinle, Wischer und Partner and Clemson University in South Carolina (USA). The recent book Architecture and Health - Guiding Principles for Practice is the latest of our joint projects. Eva Henrich and Edzard Schultz from our office were co-authors of the epilogue as well as illustrators of the cover and chapters.

From different perspectives, the textbook describes the relationship between architecture and health and illustrates how the built environment can have a positive impact on our health based on international examples. In addition, a number of design principles for the practice are derived from the award-winning example projects. Each of the three chapters looks at the topic on a different scale - the individual, the collaborative and the global

Heinle, Wischer und Partner will build the new customs office in Görlitz near the German-Polish border. It will be the place of work for the officials of the new digital radio control centre as well as the traffic control unit (Kontrolleinheit Verkehrswege).

The project is being carried out by the Free State of Saxony as a pilot project for the BIM (Building Information Modeling) planning method and we are happy to contribute our experience here.

The digital radio centre in Görlitz is one of five such facilities, which are built all over in Germany in the coming years. With the radio control centres a uniform, secure and digital radio network for the authorities and organizations with security tasks (Behörden und Organisationen mit Sicherheitsaufgaben BOS) is realized.
The traffic control unit is responsible among other things for the supervision of the movement of goods and the fight against narcotics and arms smuggling. This requires an interrogation room, an armoury and an installation for the customs dogs. In total, just over 100 civil servants will be serving in the new Görlitz office.

The written records of the Free State of Bavaria are stored in nine archives throughout the state. Now the competition for a new building in Kitzingen was decided, which is to take over this task for the administrative district of Lower Franconia.

Heinle, Wischer und Partner received the 4th prize for their design. Above the treasures of Bavaria, the new archive building rises as a wedge-shaped structure with a walk-in roof and is thus itself an experience for visitors.

From the jury's reasoning: "The authors succeeded in generating the link between the special location in Kitzingen, the history of the state, which is to be documented via the State Archives, and a future-oriented use and interpretation that is of interest to the public. The local, topographical and landscape features are sensitively taken as background and unique feature."

Stanisław Wyspiański is a well-known playwright and modernist visual artist in Poland. For the collection of his works and to impart his heritage, a new museum building is being built in Krakow.

One of Wyspiański's postulates was the syncretism, in which many types of art merge into a whole and who won’t be restricted by the limitations of conventions. His work is characterized by simplicity, synthesis and a concise and compact form. The vision of the Wyspiański Museum, like his work, is based on the combination of different elements. The multifunctional, linear space based on the play of light and shadow and surrounded by a simple architectural form.

Heinle, Wischer and Partner are very pleased to have convinced with the proposed design and to receive the first prize in the international competition.

Erwin Heinle would have been one hundred years old in 2017. That was the inspiration for our exhibition "Heinle Best Of", which tells of his work but above all of his personality.

After stops at the Stuttgart State Academy of Fine Arts and the "Wechselraum" of the BDA Baden-Württemberg, the exhibition can now be visited at any time - in the digital exhibition space

Original documents from various decades tell of the adventures of an architect who was also a skier, professor, art lover, moderator, entrepreneur, pioneer ... Erwin Heinle always wanted to shape the future - the optimistic, innovative and unprejudiced view of what was to come was more important to him than anything backward-looking. In this sense, he has designed and realized and worked together with others to make something new possible.

The building, which was built in 1903 for the city gas plant, is part of a listed ensemble on the premises of the local energy supplier in Nuremberg. On the ground floor is the former gas cleaning hall, while the upper floor opens to the roof structure made of steel beams - an unusually progressive construction for the construction period.

With the renovation and refurbishment, the upper floor was made usable again and today offers space for a modern office environment with differentiated offers for concentrated or joint work, flexible meeting possibilities and collegial exchange. Particular attention was paid during the conversion to the preservation of the visible roof structure and the open space.

Lecture by Steffen Walter on October 23, 2018 at the Leibniz University Hannover

As part of the "Swiss Brutalism" colloquium, Steffen Walter from our Stuttgart office will report on the renovation concept of Heinle, Wischer and Partner for the Kollegiengebäude of the University of Stuttgart.

see project

The twin buildings Kollegiengebäude I and II were built between 1960 and 1965. Designed by the architects Ralf Gutbier, Kurt Siegel and Günter Wilhelm, the ensemble with its pure character is a major work of the new "Stuttgart School of Architecture 1946-70". It was renovated by us between 2000 and 2009. Fair-faced concrete, exposed masonry made of hard bricks, glass and ash wood still characterize the appearance of both buildings even after the renovation.

Penguin Café

Opening ceremony 28 march 2018

The Penguin Café in the Dresden Zoo opened a little earlier than planned. The cafe got its name from the immediate vicinity of the penguin enclosure, which can be watched from the café's terrace. The basic idea of the architecture is the association with the habitat of penguins made of rocks and ice floes. The design model for the cantilevered roof is a huge ice floe, which is supported by rocks.

Heinle, Wischer and Partner has a lot of experience in planning and building zoological gardens. References of the office are for example the giraffe house in the Dresden Zoo, the Aquazoo in Dusseldorf or the lemur plant in the Erfurt Zoo.
