Berufsbildungszentrum | Münnerstadt

On the home straight!

After a successful competition in the small town of Münnerstadt, GTL is now involved in the planning and support of the new vocational training center's outdoor facilities of almost 14,000 m2. The school campus is divided into various sections such as a reading area or a courtyard. There is also an all-weather sports field with an adjacent step system made of concrete blocks and steps for access and stay. The planned completion of the project is expected for the new school year in September 2020. Photo: © GTL

Green Quarter Stephansstift | Hannover

Recognition | In collaboration with RKW Architektur +

In the south of the newly emerging "Green Quarter", there is a new nursing home building with an associated open space which, due to its location, functions as an entrance to the new quarter. In order to fulfill this task, a generous, open plaza area made of water-bound pavement was created, which picks up the tree motif from the southern inventory. The large plaza area is address-forming and marks the main entrance of the southern building block. In the inner courtyard of the new building, a generous plaza area consisting of a large green space, bordered by lounge elements, is provided, which extends the building's internal use into the outdoor space. The inner courtyard is supplemented by a dense grove of trees, which dissolves from the green area into the square area. The planting areas surrounding the building will be designed as retention areas with site-appropriate perennials and grasses.

City Hall Extension at  Droste-Hülshoff-Square | Bottrop

Recognition | In collaboration with Lepel & Lepel

The open space concept is characterized by linearity and clarity, which connects the city hall with the city center through recurring elements and a long visual axis. The open space is subdivided into various areas with different qualities and opportunities for recreation. One focus is the pocket park in the north, the town hall garden and the two-part Droste-Hülshoff-Platz. In addition, the improvement of the urban climate was achieved, among other things, through tree plantings and surfaces in light colors.
