Guided tour of the East Wing
Free admission, max. 20 people, duration: 20 min.
Julian Snethlage, project manager at the architects’ office heinlewischer, reports on the status of the conversion during a tour of the east wing. By the end of 2023, a rehearsal and residence centre with studio stage and gastronomy will be built here. The design by heinlewischer includes a generous structural opening of the building. The foyer, which is as high as the building and flooded with light, will then provide a view of the listed Kroherbinder and create an architectural and historical connection from the forecourt to the surrounding garden city.
