About us

Our internationally active office devotes itself to the planning and construction of buildings in the health care, research and social housing sectors, as well as town planning for the private and public sectors. Our goal is to create modern buildings which positively boost working and living spaces. To us, architecture means understanding and ordering things whilst focusing upon people. To a large extent, the designs of Nickl & Partner Architekten are based upon the actions and needs of people who work, live and receive health care there. Their wellbeing in addition to the perfection, functional interplay of flexible spatial designs and exciting materials is our key concern when performing our work. We rank among the leading architect’s offices in Germany in the fields of medical facilities, clinics and research institutes. Our specialist expertise in the fields of technology and building materials is very extensive and our innovative concepts have proved themselves over a period of more than 4 decades.

The AGNES forms a new urban building block within the existing fine-grained structure of the Baden Canton Hospital. Following the topography, the building is embedded in the landscape in the form of two interlocking rectangles, with the close link to nature and its surroundings also being taken up in the interior.

News & Innovations

Winner of the competition for the Longgang District Nursing Home
Nickl & Partner has won the award of contract for the construction of the new Longgang District Nursing Home. The new geriatric care centre will be built in the Longgang District east of Shenzhen. Nickl & Partner Architekten has won the international competition with an innovative concept of multidimensional “care for the elderly”. Part of the concept is the “three-dimensional community”. The staggered arrangement of tesseract units creates the impression of a city growing with the light. The open spaces gained thereby are used for vital greening and contribute to the lively overall atmosphere. The generous green spaces also fulfil the residents’ traditional national longing for the ideal of life in old age and the bond with nature. Further reading
Nickl & Partner builds the new German Embassy in Burkina Faso
We are delighted to have won the contract for this new construction project in Burkina Faso.
The future new building in the West African city of Ouagadougou will comprise a public chancellery, a centrally located reception area, a residence divided into a private and an official part as well as a guardhouse in front of it facing the street.
The building is divided into three separate structures that are connected by a generous cantilevered roof element. The different dimensions of the individual structures create a hierarchy: the most public area, the chancellery, has the largest volume, while the residence as the most private area is the smallest structure.
The roof element connects the three building volumes to a single unit and provides shade between the buildings, creating quality forecourts and cool lounging areas outside. The green area surrounding the new embassy building will be transformed into a garden area with biotopes and private gardens.

Mopdular Healthcare - Constructing a new modular ward building in Cologne
A new ward building for general psychiatry and psychotherapy in Cologne on the grounds of the LVR Clinic. Our design developed from the idea of creating a psychiatric facility of the highest quality consisting of only two prefabricated modular timber units, which implements the principles of Healing Architecture - in line with our philosophy for healthcare buildings.
The building structure picks up on various urban axes and alignments, creating various public and private outdoor spaces that offer the future residents and staff ideal recreational qualities. The internal structure is defined by a clear, linear orientation, light-flooded rooms and corridors, which are loosened up by the arrangement of various lounges along the façade.
