Along the Nonnenbach river, near the city hall will be situated the new Festhalle – festival hall – of Kressbronn, on the Constance Lake.
Thanks to its large openings on the site, the Festhalle allows a good vision of the surroundings and natural illumination.
With the sawtooth roof, that allows to put photovoltaic panels (south) and soft natural illumination (north), the buildings is nicely integrated in the surrounding: not too fancy, not too flat.
The facade adds some serious look to the building with its vertical thin sticks done with light warm grey, almost beige, wood. The entrance and the openings, according to the sawtooth roof, are structuring the hall.
All other openings are hidden beyond the wood sticks, creatings light effects during the night.
