New construction of a temporary multifunctional building in timber construction

The “B-Part Am Gleisdreieck” is a temporary pioneer development at the Gleisdreieck. As a symbol for the living and working worlds of tomorrow, the urban laboratory B-Part already stands for the uses of the future urban quarter Urbane Mitte Am Gleisdreieck: new work, art & culture, sports, regional trade and gastronomy.
The basic shape of the two-story wooden building is bent twice. This makes it stand out like a sign in the area, which is characterized by old commercial buildings. With its wooden fa├žade and outdoor terraces, the temporary building looks inviting to park visitors.
In addition to the short construction time, a criterion for the wooden construction was the sustainability of the building material and its high aesthetic quality. The exposed wooden ceilings and the walls clad with maritime pine panels create a natural atmosphere inside.

This project was awarded the Iconic Award 2020.
