Seminar room HTWG Constance
Architects Glück + Partner and Schädler + Zwerger planned an additional building on the banks of the Seerhein for the University of Technology, Business and Design Constance. Simple and clear architectural elements dominate the reduced-area floor plan, the focus of which is on the large entrance hall and the central light shaft.
The shell of the building was designed as a strip-structured facade. The suspended concrete skin panels made of glassfibre reinforced concrete reflect the surface and appearance of the exposed concrete of the neighbouring building and create a harmonious connection. The horizontal strips extend across the facade in a light-dark contrast, which creates an exciting visual effect. Individual highlights are yielded through the play of light and shadow.
