new-build project'Römerkanal information centre', Rheinbach
The new building of the 'Römerkanal Informationszentrum' serves the tourist information on the Römerkanal-Wanderweg. Together with the 'Glas Museum' located in the Himmeroder Hof and the Nature Park Center Rheinland, a center for culture and tourism is being built.
The listed building complex Himmeroder Hof is located in the center of Rheinbach. It includes parts of a courtyard dating from the first half of the 18th century and was converted into a cultural and civic center in the 1980s.
In close cooperation with the preservation of monuments and the parties involved on side of the city and the friends of the Roman Canal, a cautiously designed, massive cube emerges against the backdrop of the Himmeroder Hof, which sets off from it through a glass connection. This 'glass fugue' serves as a sensitive connection of 'new' and 'old'.
