The eye-catching high-rise in Konstanz’s Petershausen district has begun a new chapter in its history: What was once an office building for Deutsche Telekom has been transformed into ODE LOFTS, a modern space for comfortable living with breathtaking views of Lake Constance and the Alps over the rooftops of the city. Designed in collaboration with the Berlin-based international architecture firm Sauerbruch Hutton, this unique project’s 98 apartments, with their curving balconies facing east and west, offer an ambience you won’t find anywhere else.
The high-ceilinged interior spaces will be converted into modern lofts with open-plan living areas. This will preserve the underlying structure of the former office building, with its rounded concrete pillars and its open-beam ceilings – the expansiveness of these spaces is what gives them their unique character. Large banks of windows flood the rooms with light, creating homes that are airy, bright and well-appointed. The curved balconies extend the living space into the outdoors, while sliding glass panels can be closed to protect up to two-thirds of the balcony from the wind.
An Ode to Architecture
ODE LOFTS is situated among parks and other green spaces. The 16-story facade, featuring high-end ceramic tiles in various colors, is designed to produce a harmonious interplay between the building and its surroundings. The transformation of an office block into a residential building is not only an impressive example of modern living but also an important step toward a more sustainable and livable city. By repurposing the existing structure and reusing the resources available on site, we were able to create new living spaces while simultaneously saving materials and thus also emissions.
Architecturally, ODE LOFTS is designed to encourage communal living. The outdoor areas provide a place for chance encounters and conversations. The ground floor will house retail spaces, creating a fluid interface between the building and its environment. A rooftop terrace on the 16th floor, open to all building residents, offers breathtaking views. The underground parking garage has space for cars and motorcycles, while bikes (including cargo bikes) can be parked outside. Bike- and car-sharing options are available right next to the building to ensure that everyone’s transportation needs are met.
