Central Point Bad Schönau
|BUILDER||Gemeinde Bad Schönau|
|ADRESS||Kurhausstraße, 8253 Bad Schönau|
|COMPETITION||2011, 1st award|
|DIMENSION||about 8.000 m²|
With basic elements, the competition creates identity for the community of Bad Schönau. The fundamental shape of the design is derived from a commercial furniture. It enriches the function of the public area and transforms the heterogeneous urbanistic structure into a closely stored town centre.
In consideration of a limited budget, an abstract and stylized flower is applyed to the ground.
At the heavy used areas the ornament becomes more intensive. Near to the traffic zones, the pattern floats into the streets. Other arrays, such as the parking area, are appareled with escofet seating furniture, that can also be used as flower boxes.
When you enter the village, the 4 m high glass star shaped flower represents the sparkling medicinal water. In addition to that, it serves as information point. The specifically developed outdoor lightings amplify the concept of design.
