This is a project by Jarosch Architektur and it is located at Darmstadt, Germany. There are seven images for Buero G7.
The four-storey Gründerzeit brick building in Martinviertel, Darmstadt is surrounded by a back yard. A former farriery in the rear part of the parcel is currently used as atelier and workshop. Access to the ensemble happens up to now via two entrances. Thus the erstwhile driveway hall is dispensable as entry. As a creative studio it shall complement the area’s functions.
The doorway is closed with glass elements. They continue the alignments of the main building, and keep due to their transparency the floating back yard situation. Light streams through the new room. The oblique position of the existing walls is remedied by pulling out secondary wall panels out of the western outer wall. Oriented towards the grid of the main building the panels restructure the room. The brought forth interspace houses the functions tea kitchen, lavatory and archive. The newly adjusted area serves the main purpose.
In self-aware and equitable co-existence the sober and lucid conversion behaves cautiously towards the historic inventory with its contemporary décor. The rough plainness of the used materials and the reduced creative approach assort well with the room’s exceptional proportion.
