The listed former West LB building in Dortmund is converted to a medical center.
The architect Prof. Harald Deilmann designed and realised this building as part of a building complex in the seventies. It was the first building of this period which got listed.
The new medical center houses up to 37 surgeries, retail and gastronomy are located on ground floor.
The different floors are interconnected by a new spiral staircase.
The monument protection requires the extensive preservation of the typical construction and the external appearance particularly with regard to the copper coloured aluminium panels, the golden evaporated solar glass and the white concrete parapets.
