The design for the new quarter Hildegardstraße is understood as a response to the surrounding urban context to whom it reacts. Its prominent location where former fortifications where placed is determined by a very heterogeneous environment, which shows the transition between densely populated small-scale old city buildings and larger public constructions of the studio theater and the elementary school. The new quarter Hildegardstraße therefore requires not only a functional and volumetric implementation of the required spatial program, but most importantly a deliberate architectural response to the surrounding buildings.

The design for the new building reacts to a uniform appearance and a finely differentiated vertical separation to this difficult initial situation. The single façade for both buildings emphasizes on the one hand the autonomy of the district as a new focal point and on the other works as a unifying element for the surrounding heterogeneous constructions.
The plasticity of the facade is evident in the integrated materiality of bright limestone and ceiling-high glass panels allowing a game of light and shadow. It represents the detailed contemporary response to the high quality of the existing Mandarin Hotel facade. Along the Neuturmstraße and Hochbrückenstraße reacts a slight bend on the geometry of the adjacent city blocks, dividing the otherwise overly long lines of streets and highlights the main building entrances. A large cut-out in the front of the hotel expansion in the area of the bridge connection creates a visual reference / link between the new and the old buildings in the main foyer area.
The design for the new quarter Hildegardstraße claims its outstanding urban location in the city. It establishes a modern interpretation of classical concepts in this very particular place.
