Construction of a new residential building with multifunctional spaces on Weimarstraße

Living simply in the city

The State of Baden-Württemberg is using resource-saving hybrid timber construction to develop residential space in a central inner-city location. The compact and space-saving building will allow for the existing trees on the state-owned site to be retained and will blend new forms of housing with climate-regulating green areas.

Not far from Stuttgart’s busy city centre with its shopping streets and cafés, transport buildings and cultural offerings, passers-by in a quiet side street will unexpectedly encounter an established open space. In the future, an elongated timber building with generous, open ground floor zones and seating areas under old chestnut trees will create quality living and recreational space in the densely populated city centre. On the site parallel to the west wing of the Rotebühlbau, Vermögen und Bau Stuttgart on behalf of the State of Baden-Württemberg and in collaboration with experts in simple construction is planning accessible homes for its employees, supplemented by multifunctional spaces. On the upper floors, a modular system comprising open-plan one, two or three-room apartments with separate spaces that can be rented additionally will offer a broad range of sufficient living spaces, while the shared coworking, exhibition and event spaces over two storeys in the lower zone will bring life to the urban space. Balconies out front, loggias and access balconies will provide natural shade for the low-tech building and will create a transition between the inside and outside. Planned simply and integrally, the residential building will supplement the urban stock sustainably and combine city living with city working in a natural way.
