The city hall of Karlsruhe is to be modernized. The first step is to develop a concept for the conscious, creative use of light, colour, materials, furnishings and signage. The aim is an individual, new identity that is both in contrast and in harmony with the very detailed and strong architectural language of the city hall. Grid and structure of the existing building will be interpreted and recorded in a modern way. The concept is based on reduction and clarity of the surfaces and materials using contrasting black and white; it can be flexibly applied to other construction sections.
