Extension of an institution for handicapped people
In 1845 the Michaelshof in Rostock, Germany, was founded as safety house on initiative of Johann Hinrich Wicherns. The Michaelshof is also running an inclusive school for children with special needs in the area of mental development. Together with Silvia Gorgas, the Regine Sixt Children's Aid Foundation aimed to provide the children with a safe and easily accessible outdoor area. On the existing flat roof, a terrace with a balustrade out of safety glass and a weather-resistant wood floor was built. An awning protecting the children from strong sunlight was installed simultaneously.
