Description Change this

The project is a reactivation of three Renaissance houses in the historic core of the Styrian town Bad Radkersburg. The existing structure has been expanded into a culture, event and seminar center.

The important questions is how insert a new volume into the historic surroundings with another scale, texture and functional context. The thoroughly-shaped silhouette of the new building reflects the town’s grown roof-scape. All over clad in Corten – a material suitable for a historic site since its patina harmonizes with the brickwork of the old roofs– the new building blends into the existing fabric.

The historic inner courtyard was transformed into the central lobby, an atmospheric distributor which sustains the diversity of the venue: Each room can be booked individually and various activities can proceed at the same time or the entire venue can host one big event. The main halls’ design reflects their different configurations: The ground-floor hall Black Box is an introverted space well-equipped for electronic music, theater and cinema whereas the second floor based White Hall is suited for chamber music and opens towards selected views of the town.
