The new parish hall is part of the expansion and strengthening of the courtyard. By adapting the existing covered walkway, a generous and inviting entrance is created between the church tower and parish hall, which acts as a protected meeting point before and after visiting the church.
The building maintains a presence on Zeppelinstraße though its parallel arrangement and also when the eastern part of the site is developed - its mass provides a balance to the centre‘s ensemble. With a foyer area positioned along the north elevation, the connectable function rooms of the parish hall can be opened onto the courtyard. Through a flowing transition from inside to outside, it enables the possibility of hosting different events.
The sustainability concept is based on a compact form connected with an energetic arrangement. (Buffer zone in the north) The building services concept and material decisions follow an integrated ecological philosophy.
