Sanatorium H (Germany)

The sanatorium was built in the early 1900s in a typical German Fachwerkbau (timber-frame) – style. Built in a green, rural environment, patients with lung diseases were treated here in optimal environmental conditions for more than 80 years until the sanatorium closed its doors.

Labyrinth School (Belgium)

The plans for this technical school were already drawn in the 1910s. However, these blueprints befell the same fate as many other building projects in this period; they were brought to an abrupt standstill when the First World War violently erupted. After the war, construction was picked up again, and by the end of the 1920s the building was finalized. Three quarters of a century later, at the turn of the 21st century, the school buildings became outdated and were left abandoned in favour of modern facilities. Nowadays the beautiful school buildings are being reconverted.
