Rathaus and Marktgasse Schoolhouse, Baar

The design underpins the heterogeneous external spaces with a formally independent and identity-form­ing gesture of two parallel hedges. The boxwood hedge encircles the external spaces of the center as a “green thread”. The adjacent gardens are framed with various kinds of flowering hedges. The character of each individual space is consolidated by means of the surfacing and the spatial clarification of the trees. A few elements such as an overflowing fountain or large, round seats provide accents.
