Gerber Architekten won the first prize in the competition for a new hospice in Jena-Lobeda and could compete against five other architectural offices.

The central design idea is to offer the patients of the hospice a comfortable living environment. To achieve this goal, Gerber Architekten plans to include small courtyards with gardens which will be surrounded by the private rooms. Ceiling high windows offer the residents views outside and far out into the landscape.
