Doctor’s practice old building
Dr. Hans-Peter Schreijäg
Country : Germany
For the patients of the Riedling specialist for general medicine Dr. med. Hans-Peter Schreijäg, health and recovery start in the waiting room. Even from the outside, the two-storey dwelling with attached practice rooms spontaneously reminds of an alpine mountain hut with a consistent all-wood design with a flat roof slope of 28 degrees. The interior rooms consist of solid, native conifer wood from floor to ceiling, which produces a homely atmosphere that is unusual for doctor’s practices.
With the decision to use wood as a healthy and ecological building material, it was only consistent for the nature-loving doctor to convert the entire building from oil heating to eco-electricity and equip the property with HALLER Infrared heating systems. Because of the removal of the room-filling heating oil tanks in the cellar, additional room was provided in which the HALLER eco-boiler now looks almost decorative. “Now I can hardly imagine the earlier classic radiators on the walls, these ugly steel pipe radiators and the associated pipelines which spoiled the entire ambience”
Also in the treatment rooms of the practice, which has now been rented out for age reasons, the neat flat heating elements which are discreetly attached to the wall or the ceiling printed with an art motive also heat the reception and waiting areas, which has been well received by the personnel and the patients.
“The homogeneous beneficial warmth in combination with the natural wood material can only be good for the health”, says the experienced doctor, who is truly impressed. The nature-loving, still extremely agile doctor is now a certified river guide, among other things, and is active in many social areas. Dr Hans-Peter Schreijäg writes books focussing on natural and regional history, and has also made a name for himself as an excellent connoisseur of domestic orchids.
