Metamorphosis of an Imperial Military Building into the Tübingen District Court
Between 2018 and 2021, Dannien Roller + Architekten implemented both the extensive renovation of the severely damaged state-owned chamber building in Schellingstraße and its functional and symbolic transformation into a modern place of jurisdiction.
The careful confrontation and dialogue between the original and the deliberately sparse new design provides a convincing path to the building’s new identity and dignity as a district court.
Our focus is on the workplace: the place where we spend most of our lives awake. Although we live in a world that is becoming more and more mobile from day to day, administration and production, research and teaching, education and training, and work, are linked to physical places. This topos requires both material and emotional criteria, to which we respond creatively, innovatively and with outstanding design quality.
