Construction work for the new seminar building in Bochum has begun. The first elements of the significant net-like structure were delivered. These form an efficient supporting structure along the vertical communication zone and the associated open work platforms. At the same time, the structure becomes a visible symbol of the interdisciplinary exchange between the architecture and civil engineering fields in the building.

netzwerkarchitekten receive Halstenberg commendation

On Wednesday, July 4, 2018 at a 5 pm ceremony at Industrieclub Dusseldorf, Elberfelder Street 6, the Halstenberg Commendation will be awarded to netzwerkarchitekten.
The prize will be awarded, for the third time, by the German Academy for Urban Development and Regional Development, and it honors special achievement in urban planning and regional planning in North Rhine-Westphalia.
The reason for the reception of this award:
“Netzwerkarchitekten, based in Darmstadt, has set standards in the planning culture. In 2016, after 15 years of planning and construction, the subway stretch Wehrhahn Line was opened in Dusseldorf. The netzwerkarchitekten, in collaboration with the artist Heike Klussmann, emerged victorious in a two-phase, Europe-wide competition for the overall conception of this subway route. From the beginning, a fruitful cooperation between architects, artists, and engineers, as well as the city of Dusseldorf, was cultivated. It has become a new model of collaborative construction. From the competition in 2001, to its opening, the planning methodology was a success story and is a perfect example of what large-scale construction projects should be. It is this alone that made an underground spatial continuum with a new waiting and arrival culture possible.”

We are very excited!

Residential development Pankratiusstrasse in the design advisory board

On June 29, 2018, the concept for the construction of a new residential building with 11 residential units in Darmstadt was presented to the city’s design advisory board. Our design received great approval.
In addition to green roofs, the concept envisages an intensive greening of the south-facing courtyard facade by vertically staggered plant troughs with trees and facade greening.
The plants create a beautiful living environment, and contribute to a sustainable improvement of the city climate.
The heating of the facade surfaces is reduced, noise and pollutants are absorbed, and dust is captured from the air. Plants also absorb carbon dioxide, produce oxygen, retain rainwater, evaporate water, and thus increase air humidity.

Martin Elsaesser Plaque for the central bus station in Hanau

Fifty-one entries were submitted to this year’s “Award for Good Buildings” competition, held every five years by the BDA Hessen. At the award ceremony last Friday in the German Museum of Architecture, the client and netzwerkarchitekten were happy to receive the Martin Elsaesser Plaque for the reconstruction of Freedom Square (“ZOB Freiheitplatz”) in Hanau.

We are very pleased, and congratulate all award winners!

Previously used as a public bus station and parking lot, reconstruction of Freedom Square was completed in autumn, 2015. The restructuring of the central bus station and the redesign and reorganization of the Square creates a public, open-air, barrier-free space which invites everyone to linger and enjoy the park-like setting.
This remarkable result was made possible by the intensive cooperation of the landscape architecture office Club L94 from Cologne, Schüßler-Plan from Frankfurt (overall project management), the municipal companies and proprietary enterprises of the city of Hanau, and the netzwerkarchitekten.

Day care center at Ruthsenbach

After more than one year of renovation, the day care center at Ruthsenbach in Darmstadt’s Ahrheiligen district has been put back into operation. The existing building was extensively renovated and restructured inside in order to realize a new pedagogical concept.
All facade areas that received a new insulation layer during renovation were clad with a rear-ventilated curtain wall of vertical wooden slats.
The “Kids base”, a pedestal band around the building made of cement-bonded slabs, combines the various structures, and enables the children to paint and design their day care center themselves with chalk.
