haascookzemmrich STUDIO2050 wins first prize in the "Smart Mobility Hub Stuttgart" competition.
The aim of the design is to redesign the district edge of Leonhardsvorstadt with an excitingly structured ensemble and to expand the attractiveness of the city building block to include the film and media house and the Smart Mobility Hub with a house of cultures.
With an additional fourth building block, there is a unique opportunity for a fundamental urban repair in a central inner-city location, with a diverse range of overlapping uses for a lively and intensively used neighborhood edge.
On a base that connects all uses, three buildings give rhythm to the silhouette of the ensemble and pick up on the historical and structural context of the city. The Leonhardsviertel is connected to the city center. Around the Leonhardskirche, with the Film and Media House, the Gustav-Siegle-Haus and the House of Cultures, a prelude to Stuttgart's cultural mile is created.
The horizontal and strongly separating effect of the existing multi-storey car park is abandoned in favor of individually recognizable vertical structures. This open setting allows visual references from the existing buildings on Esslinger Strasse to the green area of the base building and the city centre. The 4th building block, the House of Cultures and the Parkcube remain moderate in their height development at approx. 18m. The tower at Charlottenplatz, the film and media house and the Leonhardskirche are the vertical exclamation marks in this newly designed city view.
The modular structure of the ensemble makes it possible to move the edge of the base with regard to the desired redesign of the B14 with a significantly reduced traffic area, so that the gradual rounding off of the street space is possible on the basis of the competition result from ASP architects. The multi-stage realization of the facility can be planned by separating it into individual structures, a physical division between the hub and the film and media house is taken into account and forms the basis of the concept.
We are looking forward to the exciting task here in Stuttgart!
