Project: The “artist city Kalbe” wants to remind people of their creative potential. It pursues a sustainable urban and regional development concept. The goals are to open up perspectives for staying of inhabitants, enable people to move in and improve the quality of life for the locals. In the five years of its existence, the artist city of Kalbe has been honoured and awarded 16 times for its extraordinary works. The organisation owns three buildings, all of which are to be rebuilt or dismantled. Also, a former farm in the middle of the old town will be converted into a residential centre for scholarship holders and should create space for approx. 20 residents. In addition, there is a former court, which is to become the centre of the artists’ city. During the construction camps, an old stable building is to be converted into a conference room, café and Workshop.
Work: Demolition work, clay plaster, paving.
