CONVERSION OF THE HANOVER THEATRE WORKSHOPS TO OFFICES // 1st Place - 04.01.2023
Kicking off the year, we are delighted to have won the competition for the conversion of the former theatre workshops in Hanover.
With its characteristic clinker façade, the monumental building is an outstanding example of North German expressionist brickwork. It will now be converted into offices and an extension will be added. In addition to integrating flexible office concepts, handling the building fabric with the care necessary to ensure historic preservation plays an important role.
Drawing on the previous function as a workshop, the traditional reseda green of machine tools is taken as a theme for the new use and translated into “new tools” for the office spaces. The interior of the existing building uses inserted module bodies to create zones that make it possible to retain the workshop flair.
