Design 2 | Emilie Schölkopf | 2nd semester | winter semester 2020/21

The design is a superstructure on an existing house complex at Stuttgart's market square. It takes up the silhouette of the historic roofs and reinterprets them. The steel construction gives the structure a very filigree, transparent and restrained impression. Very lightly and almost floatingly, a roof rests on the steel structure and thus emphasises the contour of the roof ridges.

The complex is accessed through the existing buildings, either via a staircase or an elevator. At the top, one enters a generous roofscape that divides the space into different sections by means of gradations in the floor, set structures and a gallery. This creates areas that can adapt to any situation, as no specific function is assigned to them. The polyvalent space is used in a variety of ways and is oriented to the function of Stuttgart's marketplace.

The generous glazing allows an uninterrupted view over the city. Interior and exterior merge into each other and convey a feeling of freedom and lightness.

At the young talent award "Die*JungenHugos 2021" the work was awarded the Startschuss prize.

The work was supervised by Prof. Jonathan Scheder.
