In the district of Orschel-Hagen, developed in the 1960s, a residential and care facility for senior citizens and those in need of care has been built as part of an urban densification project. The architectural composition strengthens the existing urban structure and creates a prominent landmark on the main street. A spacious square in front of the nursing home creates a meeting place with a public café for the neighbourhood.
