In the proposed urban structure, the abstraction of four gabled buildings fuses into a unique sculpture that is integrated in the historical urban structure, characterised by distinct organic blocks while also creating new urban spaces. The combination of the sculptural façade, the gabled roof, and the base, made of natural stone, results in a monolithic-like structure that reflects the prevailing scale, while still being able to react to the existing and future uses of a growing city.

The inner city of Heidenheim is characterised by post-war architecture, which is visually distinct from the historical development of the Old Town. Max Dudler’s new library building is situated on the previously inaccessible property of a former penal institution, which has hitherto manifested the division between the small-scale development in the eastern part of the city and the Old Town. The new city library now connects the two areas: As an urban figure, it reflects the many layers of Heidenheim’s architectural history and the scale of the surrounding area by making proportional reference to the gabled buildings in the adjacent Old Town. Between the two “heads” rising into the sky spans an urban landscape made up of smaller “houses”, the layout of which is oriented on the long structure parallel to it. The transformation of the “organic” city results in a sculptural structure, an urban silhouette. In conjunction with the neighbouring St. Paul’s Church and the old town hall, the new building can be seen both as a solitary object and an integral part of the urban context.

Die ästhetische Wirkung des 1740 für das ehemalige Weingut des Prämonstratenserklosters Wadgassen errichteten und lange im Besitz des Bischöflichen Priesterseminars Trier befindlichen Gutshauses bewegte den heutigen Besitzer zum Kauf des Anwesens im Jahr 2007. Die Instandsetzung und Entwicklung der Anwesen verfolgte vorrangig das Ziel, die solitäre Wirkung des spätbarocken Gutshauses herauszuarbeiten und den beeindruckenden Hintergrund in die Gestaltung der Gesamtanlage einzubeziehen.
