1st prize, single-stage, open, and anonymous competition
ATP architects engineers has won 1st prize in the competition for a new operational facility for Energie Kreuzlingen in the Swiss canton of Thurgau. The particularly sustainable and functional concept “Venedig” by the integrated design office was unanimously chosen by the jury from the 16 entries.
The concept skillfully positions the operational facility on the site between an industrial zone, a residential neighborhood, and a leisure area on the banks of Lake Constance. By optimizing the layout of the volume, the courtyard for the company’s vehicles was both maximized in size and hidden from the surrounding buildings. The compact and clear volume ensures an excellent ecological footprint, while offering flexible spaces for later expansion and repurposing. In addition to this, the construction method, materials, and design of the building ensure high energy efficiency, healthy workplaces, and, above all, sustainability in the spirit of the Green Deal.
