Competition Drachenburg & Waaghaus Gottlieben 3rd place
The "Drachenburg and Waaghaus Gottlieben Foundation" was established in April 2020.
The aim of the foundation is to preserve the buildings "Drachenburg" with its residential houses, "Waaghaus" and "Rheineck", which are particularly valuable from an architectural-historical point of view, between the Seerhein and one of the most beautiful village squares in Switzerland as an overall ensemble, to attractively fill them with life with a wide range of offers as a place of power, experience and conference as well as a tourist holiday and excursion destination, and to secure their independent continued existence in the future.
The competition entry by Susanne Fritz Architects is sensitive to the listed context. The floor plans, which are characterised by functional interlocking and several individual building measures, are clarified. The building is calmed down in terms of design and the operational processes are integrated into the historical substance while taking into account the framework conditions for the preservation of historical monuments.
