New enclosure at the Wilhelma


Five inner pylons and 13 outer posts made of powder-coated steel carry the undulating roof mesh. The planners skillfully managed to include the original trees, once again making an important contribution to the environment. Three trees rise through the mesh; Carl Stahl Architecture adapted the mesh geometry to suit two others. The experts met the challenges of the sloped site with ingenious planning which resulted in a minimal number of constructional components. Thanks to the transparent look of the mesh, they also succeeded in creating a natural visual link between the Wilhelma and the immediately adjacent Rosensteinpark, an extensive park which is officially preserved as a historical monument.
