A training centre for skilled crafts is being built in the state capital of Saarbrücken. The new building will redevelop the area between the listed Pingusson building, the Westspange and the administrative headquarters of the Saarland Chamber of Skilled Crafts. The education centre for the Saarland Chamber of Skilled Crafts is designed as a flat structure that fits in between the towering buildings of the Chamber of Skilled Crafts and the former Pingusson French Embassy in a self-sufficient manner in terms of urban development. The new building concentrates compactly on the plot north of Hohenzollernstraße and supports Pingusson’s building with its self-sufficient cubature. At the same time, the restaurant area on the ground floor with its adjoining terrace offers a view of the adjacent, partially listed park area.
A building-high atrium and a workshop courtyard run through the building cube as glass passages and offer insights into the variety of crafts. Thus, the four-storey solitaire with its two inner courtyards offers the most modern conditions for dual vocational training and further vocational training.
