The Gais clinic in the Swiss countryside differentiates itself with outstanding cuisine and a picturesque environment. Thanks to a new construction, the clinic also offers contemporary architecture. The most remarkable feature are its semi-transparent balcony claddings.

“The balcony claddings break up the concrete and give the building something unique,” says the enthusiastic architect Rolf Mayer.

The interaction of light and shadow creates a play of light and shadows that finds its way into the patient’s rooms.

Architect Mayer is convinced: “Through the lights and shadows, patients experience the changing seasons much more intensely.”
