Development of Locality in Friedrichshafen with New Structures for the District Office

In the two-phase competition for the elaboration of this locality in Friedrichshafen with new structures for the Lake Constance administrative district, our submission won second prize. Also with us in the team were grabner huber lipp, landscape architects and urban planning partnership, and merz kley partners as structural engineers.

The restrained design approach, which clearly responds to the topographical and constructional surroundings, works with an arrangement of polygonally shaped buildings. Key themes were a convincing urban layout of structures in every phase of the development, an attractive public routing network, freestanding, minimally overlapping building volumes and the preservation off large parts of the valuable stock of trees along the Zeppelinstrasse.
