FS Life Studios
New building of a Fitness Pavilion for the Frankfurt School of Finance and Management.
Frankfurt am Main
Next to the new university building on the Adickesallee, a light and sustainable timber construction was created, which is not only a fitness center but also a social meeting place for Campus 2. As the extension area of the university is to be developed into student apartments, lecture flats, restaurants, sports and leisure areas in the long term, MOW planned a temporary building at this location, which thanks to its modular construction, can be dismantled and adapted for later relocation due to its modular construction. Materiality and flexibility continue to promote the resource-saving demands of the neighboring university building and underline the sustainable claim of planner and client. Under the guiding idea "Second Skin“, the interior designed by MOW, uses the theme as a metaphor for the subject of metamorphosis. Similar to sportswear, cocoon like textiles envelop the room and flowing objects reflect the dynamics of their use.
