The Senior Citizens’ Care Centre located at the fringe of Chur’s medieval city was built in the 60s and needed to be replaced by a new structure between the existing high-rise and the chapel. Designers for the project were selected by a competition.
Together with the existing high-rise and the chapel, the replaced structure defines the new Bodmerplatz. The ground floor has a cafeteria, kitchen and offices while the four upper floors have one section each with 21 beds. The rooms are arranged around a central sitting area which offers an excellent view into the courtyard.
A project design competition was held based on a study drawn up by Fanzun. The challenge was to design the new building in such a way that only minimum provisional arrangements were made in day-to-day operation. When finally completed, the building was to accommodate 84 persons, a cafeteria and administrative offices.
