City Gap Lindau/Lake Constance
Client:
Ralf und Beate Baethge, Lindau
Location:Cramergasse 10, 88131 Lindau
Completion:1995
Description:The building closes a gap in the ensemble of Lindau’s historic centre. The lot, at its most narrow point, is a mere 2,90 meters in width. Consequently, the narrow portion of the lot was left undeveloped since the restructuring after a city fire in 1728. The fully glazed façade addresses the challenge to provide a maximum amount of natural sunlight for the store depth of 35 meters. The building integrates itself into the urban fabric without denying its characteristics as object, which resulted from this specific and unusual building task.
