Bildungszentrum Hospitalhof

 Back to Projects list

The Hospitalhof is the Centre for Andragogy, Arts and Culture of the Protestant Church in Stuttgart. It is a central administration and meeting point for the Protestant Parish Stuttgart, meeting place for bodies on regional church level (e.g. Regional Synode) and spiritual centre of the Hospital Church Parish. The former building complex (year of construction 1961) has been completely demolished.

The Hospital Church and a self-supporting, approx. 13m high, side wall of the church are listed and remained preserved. The new construction is designed as a reinforced concrete structure with slabs. It comprises a six-storey administration and event building (one to two basements), as well as a single-storey underground car park below the central inner courtyard.

The event building is very complex in its spatial setting. Some floor areas are attached to wall-type supports (span width approx. 25m) to bear the load. To reduce the weight the ceilings are partially designed as hollow core slabs (positive influence on earthquake check and costs of foundation). An 11.5cm brick face wall forms the facade. The flat roofs will be extensively greened and equipped with photovoltaics. Single and strip footings establish the raft foundation. Floor and wall slabs ensure sufficient bracing of the structure.
