WORKSHOP

Als am 14. Juli 2017 eine eigenartige „Kathedrale“ den „Marktplatz“ der Stuttgarter Containercity „bekrönte“, war sie das Ergebnis eines  freudigen, aber gut geregelten Spiels . Denn es galten Umschichten-Prinzipien wie: Gebaut wird mit allem was da ist und wie alle, die Mitmachen, es auch wirklich wollen. Aber es darf nur so gebaut werden, dass alle Materialien jederzeit und unbeschädigt dahin zurückgeführt werden können, wo sie gefunden oder ausgeborgt worden sind.

new office

After weeks of hard work we finished our new studio right in front of the wagenhalle. We reused the material of the former office and built it on top of the high rack storage system where our containers are parked in-between. The former accessible storage system became structural design and the glazed facade lets the sunlight in.
