State Parliament Baden-Wuerttemberg

Stuttgart / Germany

Being the first newly constructed parliamentary edifice in post-war Germany built by architect Kurt Siegel as a concrete cube, Baden-Wuerttemberg’s regional parliament is a truly modern structure with significant symbolic value.

Maintaining and, possibly, even strengthening these traits has been the primary goal of the renovation finished in 2016 – a goal that has been achieved in a very impressive manner by the responsible people at Staab Architekten in Berlin.

We have been fortunate to be able to help with the wood selection in an advisory capacity at an early stage of the project (which is actually the ideal case) and ultimately supplied more than 20.000 m2 of finest Spessart Oak (in different thicknesses!) for the refurbishment of both assembly room and office space.

The result is a perfect example of state-of-the-art application of a traditional material and the myriad possibilities arising from the combination of premium quality wood veneers with elements of contemporary interior design.
