STADTTEILZENTRUM CANDIS. REGENSBURG
From sugar production to living and shopping: on the former Südzucker site in Regensburg, a new neighbourhood is taking shape under the name CANDIS. As part of this, on Straubinger Straße, RKW has built a new centre, containing both a full-range retailer and a local library. The library, which is enclosed in a semi-translucent shell made up of colourful bars, can be accessed via an inviting flight of stairs. With an appearance evoking the ideas of both books and variety, these bars make an exciting impression by day and by night, making the building a visible sign from some distance away, thereby acting as a symbol of the area.
