Concept & Competition Franken Architects | Kleiner Ritter

Franken Architects was commissioned by a private owner, to create a new impulse in the core of the old town Sachsenhausen by building a new home and studio in the Kleine Rittergasse.  In contrast to many tourist locations in the environment there will be revitalization of the Alt-Sachsenhausen´s traditional connection between working and living by setting a mixed use of photo studio, office and apartments to a creative cell.
