Text description provided by the architects. Right at a main road that leads to the inner city of Stuttgart there was the old youth centre, a former chemist's mansion from 1870. It was redeveloped and an extension was added that should appear as much as possible like an artificial landscape. The unique appearance of the new complex creates a characteristic location that all young users should identify with.

There are different usage located in each building part: the open youth work for all young people in the old villa, the mobile youth work for people with migrant back-ground in the tower beside and the day care for children in the low vegetated part at the street. All parts are arranged that they could be used independently. They are clearly visible to the outside and are linked through the basement where communi-cative elements such as a multipurpose room and a cafeteria with kitchen is lo-cated. There is also a semi-public outdoor area with sport facilities. The panoramic view over Stuttgart is present in nearly all the rooms of the building

In the old building all windows and doors were replaced and all technical and safe-ty installations were renewed. The wooden flooring and friezes were refurbished if possible. The construction of the new building is mostly concrete with green roofs. The very sloped facades are lined with metal and fibreboard panels.
