stein city hall renovation
The renovation of the Stein City Hall has been carried out in collaboration with the Federal Bureau of Monument Preservation. The heart of the project is the carefully restored festival hall, primarily used for weddings, city council meetings, and receptions. The wallpaper has been replaced with pale paint, allowing the 18th-century stucco ceiling to display its full splendor. At the center of the festival hall is a prominently placed lectern with a modern design conceived as an intentional counterpoint. Velvet cushioning along the walls provides noise absorption and is reminiscent of the former wallpaper. To enable a diverse range of uses, the hall has been equipped with new technical media systems, including lighting, beamer, large screen, sound system, and black-out blinds. An inductive listening system allows hearing-impaired persons to follow along at events. All these technical capabilities can be controlled from the central lectern. The entire building has been equipped with new box windows, efficient gas heating, and state-of-the-art lighting technology. The lighting of the office areas is now regulated according to natural lighting conditions. New windows, doors, and floors throughout the entire building and the addition of an elevator complete the renovation.
