2nd Prize for the Kepler-Areal in Ludwigsburg
Lively ensemble in the heart of the city

Kepler-Areal will become a lively place in the heart of Ludwigsburg. In the immediate proximity of the main railway station, our concept, for which we won 2nd place in the realization competition with studio grüngrau, transforms the wasteland into a diverse ensemble.

The triangular site is planned with efficient pentagonal buildings, whose edges respond to the strong surrounding lines of the railroad tracks, Kepler Strasse and existing buildings and allow for many visual connections. The result is a 60 m high building with approx. 11,500 m² gross floor area that will define the site far beyond its boundaries and become a landmark for the district. The 6-story hotel and apartment building is located at the corner of the Kepler Bridge and connects to the 3-story daycare center.

Congratulations to KSP Engel for the 1st prize!

The competition designs are shown in Gebäude 80, Franck-Areal Ludwigsburg, until April 29 (Wed-Fri 4-9 p.m.; Sat+Sun 2-5 p.m.).
