WAA complete construction on Schwäbisch Media in Ravensburg

WielAretsArchitects Jun 6 '13 0

Schwäbisch Media is an office building for a publishing company active in many facets of both traditional and new media. Six protruding glass-walled cubes define and compose the project, with their proportions and dimensions based on the surrounding traditional German fachwerk villas. These six working areas have been stacked on top of a transparent ground floor, through which access is afforded to each, creating a new urban typology in the center of this medieval city. Wrapping the project’s perimeter is a glass fence, varying in height from 1-4.5 meters, allowing the building to be perceived as one continuous urban intervention that fluidly interweaves interior and exterior.
