Ekkharthof Community Building, Lengwil

The living and working place for people in need of care was built in the 1970s as a gesamtkunstwerk in anthroposophical design language. Its situated in the middle of the landscape around lake of constance, thurgau. Now a new restaurant building is to become the centre of social and public life. The dining hall stages the landscape: a columned hall made of ash wood, self-bracing, open all around, stands on a concrete base that grows out of the slightly sloping terrain. The furniture was developed especially for this project

What makes this project one-of-a-kind?
It’s a modern Stoa, built in wood.
