ATP wins 3rd prize in the negotiation procedure

Hall in Tirol, 14. December 2023 – A new building for Building 2 and its psychiatric stations is being planned for the provincial hospital in Hall in Tirol. ATP architects engineers won 3rd prize in a negotiation procedure. The proposed building type, the modular timber structure, and the spatial and atmospheric qualities of the design succeeded in convincing the jury.

The concept inserts Building 2 amongst the existing structures and continues the sense of visual and physical transparency that dominates the hospital complex. And yet the new building also appears as a clearly legible, autonomous element. To this end, the existing copper beeches on the site are used to highlight the entrance of the new building.

In order to ensure a healthy environment for both staff and patients, the design combines the efficient structure of a hospital with the wellness atmosphere of a hotel. The relationship with nature, natural light, and fresh air is ensured by generous terraces, atria, and areas of garden.

Pioneering ecological contribution
ATP designed the new building as a compact, longitudinal standalone structure on a stepped back ground floor base. The volumes are generally notable for their efficiency, which facilitates both functional and well-organized floor plans and resource-friendly construction. The comprehensive energy concept envisages the use of locally available natural and regenerative energy sources as a means of significantly reducing the CO2 footprint. Overall, the design offers optimal conditions for meeting the objectives of the program “TYROL 2050 – our province will be energy independent” and the requirements of the EU Green Deal.
