Single-family house with a focus on a simple, sustainable, and recyclable timer frame construction, which allows a high degree of prefabrication and a high energy efficiency standard. The central element under the gable roof is a floor-to-ceiling built-in that bundles the ancillary rooms and makes private and public areas separable from each other.

Mailboxes, trash cans, ATMs, benches, fountains – these are many small objects of the urban space that, like the kiosk, enjoy a rather unimportant existence as purely functional pieces of public infrastructure. But through the concrete behavior we perform there, we allow these micro-architectures to awaken into "temples of the sidewalk" – places of cult and ritual to which we regularly go on pilgrimage in everyday life. The design is therefore not only dedicated to the kiosk as the largest temple, but supplements it with all the other small but characteristic temples of the urban space, houses them and celebrates them all under one common roof.

A construction limited to a minimum of material. This serene, light membrane attempts to atmospherically capture the key motifs of the 1972 Olympics – namely the desire for a “democratic green” as well as the roof over the landscape. In addition, modular lightweight structures provide space for the numerous documents and models.

In 1974, the Protestant church community acquired the old kindergarten and used the building as a parish hall until October 2022. In addition to declining membership, the community was confronted with the poor structural condition of the building and had to abandon it. Nevertheless, there was a desire to breathe a second life into it as a multi-generational building to counteract the urgently needed housing shortage in rural areas.

Derived from the industrial environment, the building is designed as a stable, rough, and industrial structure composed of precast concrete elements. The result is a building that can be flexibly zoned and whose interiors can be adapted accordingly as space requirements change. Above the three-story concrete facade, a roof garden is enclosed by a translucent coarse mesh.
