A new four-story building in the Ostendstraße closed a gap in the tight urban ensemble at the center of Mögeldorf (Am Mogeldorfer Plärrer). The new construction picks up both the height and the roof line of neighboring buildings and thereby completes the urban landscape of the Mögeldorfer Plärrer. Together with a neighboring building, the new construction defines a structural edge along the Ostendstraße. The construction, along with buildings on the main street in Mögeldorf, closes a gap in an existing block, significantly improving space in the interior of the block.
The tree located in the middle of the façade is a distinctive symbol. Not only does it mark the urban “gate” leading to the town, but as a “tree of life” it also serves to identify the building’s use as a health center.
