Museum and Cultural Forum South Westphalia
by Bez + Kock Architekten

Brigida González

Stuttgart architecture studio Bez + Kock Architekten has designed Museum and Cultural Forum in South Westphalia, Germany.

The existing building connects to the extension through a bridge-like docking structure from the first basement of Landsberger Hof, accentuating this passage with three diagonally-cut window openings towards Brückenplatz.

The path leads straight to a full-height panoramic window, which opens up – from a height of 15 meters – an impressive view of the city.

The English Promenade, an existing historical footpath on the hill below Landsberger Hof, was preserved and now passes under the connecting bridge of the two building structures to a public panoramic terrace on the lower roof of the museum.

This project has been longlisted in the cultural building category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
