Installation of Povisorien health schools in five existing buildings in the Klybeckareal as a result of conversion measures in Spenglerpark Münchenstein.
The BZG and BfG health schools of the cantons of Basel-Stadt and Baselland were located in the Spenglerpark buildings in Münchenstein. As a result of the overall renovation of these buildings, they were temporarily housed in five existing buildings in the Klybeckareal. A total of approximately 20'000 m2 of temporary school space was created there for around 1'600 users.
Blaser Architekten worked as general planner for the landowner Rhystadt AG, Basel. We were also responsible for the tenant improvements including relocation planning, IT and security.
The depth of penetration into the buildings was very different due to the varying condition of the buildings and the user requirements. The space program included the creation of various classrooms for frontal and studio teaching, movement rooms, laboratories, administration and various recreational and social rooms. For the training of nurses, a functional bed ward was installed so that the students could fully simulate the nursing situation in the hospitals.
Construction began in mid-November 2020, and school operations started on schedule at the beginning of August 2021, at the start of the new school year.
