New construction of an administration building — Hospitalstraße 33, 70174 Stuttgart, Germany — 6,500 m² — 2019 — Gesellschaft für Wohnungs- und Gewerbebau Baden-Württemberg AG, Stuttgart
The office is my castle
blocher partners conceptualise, plan and build the new administrative office for the Gesellschaft für Wohnungs- und Gewerbebau Baden-Württemberg AG (GWG, association for residential and commercial construction) at its Stuttgart site. GWG’s qualities come out in the building itself: innovation, transparency and down-to-earth character.
The four-storey building with an additional mezzanine floor will be widely visible as a city block of greater independence and strong presence. Centrally located in Stuttgart’s hospital quarter, it will contribute considerably to the upgrading of the quarter. The courtyard’s redesign does its part: located above the underground garage, the courtyard will be planted, thus becoming a welcoming oasis. The high standard of the urban and constructional concept quality and optimal use of space continues on the inside, with a flexible and sustainable office structure, carefully selected textile surfaces as well as a material mix of exposed concrete, glass and wood.
