Stadtmauerhaus – Wohn- und Geschäftshaus
An important link in the urban planning between the Museum and the city centre is the new Stadtmauerhaus (city wall house). It connects the cultural and commercial city.
With its cubist design, it presents itself as a finely proportioned building sculpture. Windows and balconies were embedded into the body, rather than additively attached. The delicate architectural style bridges the gap between the historical Gründerzeit houses and the primarily closed, two-storey buildings around the Citykirche (city church).
It is aligned with the hillside and consists of two main bodies that cover multiple storeys. Its materials and colours are designed to match the historical cityscape.
