Text description provided by the architects. The Municipality of Stuttgart intended to build a roof for the skaterpark placed at the Friedhofstreet in the north of Stuttgart, which was constructed in 2008. They wanted to protect the excisting apartment house in south-west an the projected apartment building on the ground of the Auto-Staiger Car sale from the extremly noise of the skatepark.
If not the municipality would close the park concerning the excisting noise regulations. The new housing enables the skater to use the park until 22:00 h, also if it snows or rains. The construction of the roof is made by boardcoatwood to do the cross- bracing. They have a distance of 4 m and a lenght of 26,5 m. The cross-bracing for the longitudinal direction is made by the trapeze iron sheet and the concavity. So we need no other support or stiffener.
The frontpart is constructed with double front glass. The glass is light scattering and transluzent. To see in, the glasses at the entrance and to the cycle track are completely transparent. There are no facades on the longitudinal because the roof is reaching the ground.
