Residential Buildings Stauferpark 311 and 312 in Göppingen
The conversion of vacant military sites includes the restoration of earlier settlements for military personnel and their families. Gaus & Knödler Architekten have been entrusted several times with this task.
Following the withdrawal of US forces in 1994/95, the municipal housing company acquired the former military allotment “Bürgerhölzle”. As a sub-project within a multi-year renovation program, the Wohnbau GmbH Göppingen initially commissioned Gaus & Knödler Architekten with the extensive renovation of the building Stauferpark 311 and 312.
These two residential buildings form a building with a length of more than 80 meters in formerly typical barracks architecture. The buildings have been completely modernized, this also included the renovation of all bathrooms and sanitary facilities in the housing stock.
By adding new storeys to the building, additional housing units were created. With attractive roof terraces and a renewed appearance in strong colours the former “barracks style” has disappeared. All measures have been implemented while the building was inhabited requiring a very special sequence.
