Wohn- und Geschäftshaus Werderstrasse 73, Schwerin
Building prize – Attractive city centre – the state capital Schwerin.
Restoration of a heritage listed timber framed building dating from 1760, with modernization and extension in the rear courtyard together with a new garden layout.
Excerpts from the prize jury´s assessment.
The project…. stands out through an appropriate and, at the same time, modest restoration of the historic front building together with the sensitive insertion of the rear extension. In addition to the quality of the work, it is especially important to stress that here is an example of how a difficult urban location can be revitalised, and through appropriate planning, a modern living and working environment…. can be achieved.
