Pfauengarten Development Graz Building
Over the existing level, which lies below the top of the historical fortified wall, a new plateau is constructed.
On the one hand this plateau is clearly separated from the town wall – whose character it consequently massively strengthens – by a distinct joint, while on the other hand it allows an unobstructed view into and across the Stadtpark in a way previously not possible.
Equally new is the direct pedestrian connection between Karmeliterplatz and Stadtpark created by making a staged cut through the historical fortifications that is integrated in the project as the last part of a cultural axis called for by the municipal authorities which extends across the Schlossberg to the Forum Stadtpark.
However, possibly the most important aspect is that all the visual relationships that previously existed have been preserved: the view from the Stadtpark of the Clock Tower, the view from the Stadtpark of the Landesarchiv roof with the Schlossberg behind, and the view from Karmeliterplatz to the tree tops of Stadtpark, which lies at a lower level.
In this sensitive transitional zone lozenge-shaped floor plans were developed.
