As part of a competition the architectural studio heri&salli designed together with S IMMO AG as investor and KMG Kultur und Medien GmbH the cultural quarter at the park, abbr. KaP.
The aim ist o create a hetorogenous building type, that combines working, living and spare time activities under one roof. Core target groups are part-time artists- especially concentrating on music and different creative sectors.
The concept of different tenants, operators and inhabitants, but also external users should be reflected in the building. A heterogenous user environment reflects in a heterogenous building environment. Different user demands require different structural measures, as demonstrated by the facadedesign. Added values are shifted by different designs.
Regarding functionality the building is divided in 4 main areas, that are directly entwined horizontally and vertically.
The gastronomic area including the event sector on the ground floor is interlinked with the rehearsal rooms and creative- and movement spaces on the second floor and in the basement, implying significantly the passage to the public as consumption-free zone.
Seating tiers like in an arena leading from the park to the ground floor and the landscape of steps to the upper floor define the passage into the building or to the park and conduct to the micro-living areas above, residential units of 25-40m2 can be used in the short as well as in the long term.
