Invited competition
Shortlist: Pillnitz castle forecourt

The design of the forecourt of Castle Pillnitz derives from the site specific historical background. Within the site the square acts as walking access and functional circulation area for the castle.

Taking into account the use as ‘farm yard´ the square design provides a generous continous solid surface bounded by the adjacent buildings and forecourts of the Castle Hotel and Saxonian State Research Centre for Agriculture. The square is designed to be a continous space guiding the pedestrian flows with precisely placed orientating design elements and provide different stop-over amenities and retract locations. Opened up views and faciliated recognition of all contact points enables easy orientation for visitors.
