Office and Residential Development Klarissenkloster Münster, 2003-2006
The prominent location of the property on Weseler Strasse in Münster in the direct vicinity of Lake Aasee is predestined for spacious office use. The horizontally accentuated ribbon façade with its dynamic arches enhances the entire area and sets a new urban accent along Weseler Strasse. The arched block edge development encloses three city villas in a quiet inner courtyard. The solitary city villas face south and contain spacious, handicapped-friendly apartments that are taken care of by the neighbouring St. Lamberti nursing home. The entire development has an underground car park with 65 parking spaces. The facing brickwork made of Wittmund bricks is combined with oak windows and alludes to the historical materiality of the Klarissen monastery.
