Located in Quadrant A the Lungenheilstätte für Frauen, part of the Beelitz Sanatorium site we find Pavilion B ii and B iv.
Pavilion B ii was constructed during the preliminary stage of construction between 1898 and 1902 to the designs of architects Heino Schmieden and Juluis Boethke. Pavilion B iv was constructed during the second building phase between 1905 and 1908 to the designs of architect Fritz Shulz.
The work of Shulz is a lot less extravagant though the baths are stunning and seem to be an exeption. The rest of his work seems to be based more around function than aesthetics. Maybe this was related to funds or possibly the functionality of the design to the original buildings.
Pavilion B iv was severely damaged during WWii and is now pretty much a ruin though a few parts are still standing the tests of time hence the lack of images. After the war when the soviets took over the site they had more space than required, so it has been abandoned ever since. Left a ruin for 65 years and still seemed to be of solid construction is quite an impressive feat.
The older Pavilion B ii managed to evade bombing and was used by the soviets after the war.

The older style stands out straight away with the more extravagant features.
