This urban design project for Kureck in Wiesbaden caters for a variety of uses, combining new buildings with existing structures from different eras. The goal is to create a vibrant city within a city thanks to quality architecture and new public spaces, while linking the quarter to the town centre. Quoting the figure of a campanile, this distinctive locale within the ground plan of Wiesbaden is highlighted by a central tower. The high-rise will serve residential use from the fourth floor upwards; the lower levels will join with adjacent buildings to provide offices and a hotel. One of Wiesbaden’s few notable examples of modernist architecture built after the First World War has been revitalized and extended and, since completion in 2018, now accommodates the Ministry for Social Affairs and Integration. A listed town house dating from 1907, restored, repaired and converted by 2020, has become the Ministry for Digital Strategy and Development. Together with a new hotel finished in 2021, which echoes the pentagonal plan of the tower, the Kureck ensemble establishes an entrée for the new urban quarter on the slopes of Adolfsberg, where Max Dudler has designed two urban villas. The refashioned square opens onto the park-like, car-free residential zone via broad stone steps.
