3rd Prize for multi-storey timber construction

"Situated along the new boulevard and opposite the public services centre, the new building with it’s slender structure promises an attractive streetscape along the entire length of the plot comprising a colonnade and special occupations on the ground floor. To complement the urban design, a parking deck of equal height has been added at the junction with Weidenbornstrasse, where the narrow structure alone does not lend itself to form a prominent street corner. In combination - with a façade-like structure yet of a different type of construction - it creates a powerful angular figure."
That is the verdict the jury reached in the design competition "Neubau Verwaltungsstandort Weidenbornstrasse" in Wiesbaden, awarding 3rd prize to Birk Heilmeyer und Frenzel Architekten.
