Town Hall in Rosenberg, designed by German architect Ecker architekten.

The town hall in Rosenberg -together with an existing school, a baroque church, and an enormous chestnut tree – completes a public square that was only partially evident before the start of construction. From the careful re-working of existing elements, a new town center has been created.

Many buildings experience a change of use in the course of their life span. The flexible reconfiguration of this building was therefore given a high priority. A reinforced concrete ribbed slab spans the entire building width. Demountable partitions divide these support-free areas and can be easily removed or reconfigured.

The modular ribbon window facade emphasizes the efforts made toward flexibility. The stairs and all service shafts lie in a central core and so keep the remaining areas variable. In the roof level is the Council Chamber, which is spanned with a double- curved timber shell. A covered loggia at this level offers a splendid view of the church façade and valley beyond.
