New wings of Jacoby Studios by David Chipperfield Architects

David Chipperfield Architects' abandoned hospital conversion features in today's Dezeen Weekly newsletter

The latest edition of our Dezeen Weekly newsletter features the conversion of an abandoned hospital in western Germany into an office.

David Chipperfield Architects has turned the former St Vincenz Hospital in Paderborn into a new headquarters for Tap Holding – a family-run company in the DIY-craft market.

Originally built as a monastery, the building's hidden historic walls were revealed during the renovation and three new office wings built.

One reader said the office is "so beautiful it takes my breath away".
