Nicolas Heppner // Offenbach


Zollamt Creative Studios

The project looks at converting a customs holding facility, originally built in 1952, and turning it into a creative hub.

It is set within the recently designated creative district of Offenbach, Germany and would offer local artists and designers the space to work and collaborate whilst also seeking to integrate and retain talented migrants within the community through entrepreneur mentorship programs.

The proposal features a modular timber panelling system which allows artist studios and workspaces to be flexibly partitioned to accommodate especially the volatile growth of small businesses. A parametrically designed timber bridging structure is proposed between the existing buildings and would hold communal spaces such as an auditorium, a gallery, and an exhibition area.
