Werneck, 8th March 2022 – The construction of the extension to the Clinic for Forensic Psychiatry in Werneck, which was designed by ATP Nuremberg, has begun. Our design team from ATP Nuremberg was joined at the groundbreaking ceremony by politicians and representatives of the Department for Involuntary Treatment and of the District Hospital.
The new building will contain 36 urgently needed additional patient rooms as well as up-to-date spaces for sport and ergotherapy. By reflecting the existing, L-shaped structure, it creates a U-shaped complex. The open space created in the heart of the complex will be used by patients.
The facility will be realized in a series of phases without interrupting normal operations. The careful integration of the new building into the existing grounds of Werneck Palace will create a harmonious overall ensemble in a historic setting.
