Administrative Building Appenzell 1st prize
Developed as a subtle addition to the historical ensemble of freestanding buildings, this new office mediates between two linear urban structures by assuming a parallelogram-shaped footprint. At the same time, tracing the street, the addition spatially redefines and sharpens the flow of Marktgasse while increasing the prominence of neighboring existing buildings. Three gable elements of equal size facing south take up the historical rhythm of the characteristic roof ridge landscape. The formation of a single transverse gable towards Landsgemeindeplatz makes the building recognisable and asserts the location of the courtroom as the most important room of the building.
