Metamorphosis of an Imperial Military Building into the Tübingen District Court Between 2018 and 2021, Dannien Roller + Architekten implemented both the extensive renovation of the severely damaged state-owned chamber building in Schellingstraße and its functional and symbolic transformation into a modern place of jurisdiction. The careful confrontation and dialogue between the original and the deliberately sparse new design provides a convincing path to the building's new identity and dignity as a district court.
