The former market hall in Wolfsburg underwent a significant transformation during which it was given a new life as the digital living room of Wolfsburg. The aim is to set up a hotspot for digitalisation and to test new forms of collaboration between the city, partners, companies, citizens and organisations.
One of the new residents of the Markthalle is the coworking space Schiller40. Schiller40 was the first communal coworking space in Germany and they have been doing pioneering work in bringing citizens of the city into contact with digital technology.
We were honoured to be designing this new space for digital ideas and especially proud to continue the Finnish design tradition in Wolfsburg, where the renowned architect Alvar Aalto has designed three buildings.
