New Cultural Center

Grandits+Mandl’s conceptual proposal for the new design of the cultural center in Friedrichshafen is set under a wave-structure, which provides and emphasizes in vertical-organized functional spaces. The concept of lifting the existing terrain is applied to the public part of the building, including its spacious 450 seats hall, atrium, restaurant, bar and walk-able ramp. The building contains a multifunctional underground area. This floor is composed of offices, seminar rooms and working spaces, which all enjoy the natural view of the Bodensee.

The central heart, an axis present in all levels, contains the mobility functions of the cultural center. This element is continuously surrounded by a symphonic wave ramp and ends with it in the cantilevered exhibition hall, on top of the building.

The exhibition hall goes beyond its standard uses. This glass-wall block is design to work as a multifunctional space. It embraces the traditional exhibition purposes in combination with an open public leisure area, created by the wave structure ramp which provides an additional outer access to the exhibition hall. The external entrance offers the opportunity of an independent use from the rest of the building.
