Campus Building Medicine Campus Davos, Davos

With the campus building, an international centre of excellence for research, treatment and education in the allergy field is being created. The new building meets the complex requirements arising from its use as an educational campus, research laboratory and office.

The institutions SIAF, CK-CARE and Hochgebirgsklinik Davos are pooling their expertise: In the new campus building, which is directly connected to the Hochgebirgsklinik Davos, the spatial proximity of the three partners creates synergies and unique added value for researchers, medical staff and people with allergies or asthma. The new building was the first step in an ambitious master plan for the entire area of the Medicine Campus Davos.

Both the architecture and the interior design of the campus building meet the complex requirements resulting from its multiple use as a training campus and research laboratory with offices under one roof. Various training rooms, a congress hall and a foyer are located on the ground floor. Office and laboratory workplaces on the upper floors round off the range of uses. The technical challenges of the building and the requirements for the laboratory areas (BSL 2 and BSL 3), coupled with a tight budget, proved to be particularly demanding.

Diverse building use with the highest demands

The metal grid on the exterior façade fulfils several functions. On the one hand, the public ground floor is distinguished. On the other hand, the different façade grids for office and laboratory use are covered and tied together. The grid also serves to regulate the solar gain and to clean and maintain the façade, which is thus made possible despite the fixed glazing of the laboratory windows while the building is in operation.
