Königstraße 51, Stuttgart

At a historically significant connection from the marketplace in the direction of Tübingen, the transition between Königstraße and Eberhardstraße, history is not legible. The goal is to create a building that will endure and create a fixed point in the urban fabric, independent of all changes in the neighborhood. This is not necessarily created by height, but by self-evident solidity and an appropriate proportion of closed wall surfaces. Its independence is strengthened by the design of a rectangular structure that projects slightly towards Königstrasse and detaches itself from the neighboring block. This corresponds to the historic layout of the city. The result is a building that shapes the site through its unpretentious order and enables future viability.
