The Villach Regional Hospital has been expanded with a new building that will house the de La Tour-ambulance, the dialysis unit and the Psychiatry department. The bottom floor of the new building, which appears to "grow" out of the park, consists of two organically shaped buildings. The seemingly random shape is matched to the internal processes and functions. This area also provides access between the overlying Psychiatry department and the area adjacent to the patient delivery. The upper floors appear to float over the curved roof of the basement. The austere exterior shape is offset by the central courtyard which opens the building to an open-air "foyer". Particular emphasis is placed on the outer surfaces. The relaxing atmosphere of the parks assists the patient in their therapy and offers employees the possibility of recovery breaks.
