The Evangelical Protestant Church’s new headquarters in Stuttgart occupies the site of a 15th-century Dominican monastery destroyed in World War II and makes its remnants part of it.
The complex replaces the disjointed postwar reconstruction and creates a new wing attached to the preexisting wall of the church nave, which in turn marks the access to the complex through a central court.
With a traditional bond of light-colored bricks, the project restores the unitary nature of the monastery turned into a hospital during the Reformation, but the free treatment of openings avoids excessive regularity.
An L-shaped building with training spaces, offices, and a conference room connects through a central court with the church, which in a later phase was consolidated and completed with a new gallery for the organ.
