Entry Description

The re-planning of the Dorotheen Quartier not only creates new areas for public use, it also offers an opportunity to reassess the relationship with the Karlsplatz. This thoroughfare has, until now, always been perceived as the less important “back” of the site. With this project, which includes three mixed-use buildings with offices, small-scale retail and urban living, the valuable central city core is now infused with a new identity and vitality – complete with a broad range of user activities. Thus, the new area augments Stuttgart’s existing, thriving network of lively pedestrian areas.
