Raumzit architecture completes the Jugendherberg in Germany
The new "Jugendherberge" (Youth Hostel) is situated in an old quarter of Bremen that stretches out along the river in narrow streets. Damaged in the war, the quarter nowadays is characterised by post-war rebuilding. As in many cities, the urban planning intents to revitalise the waterfront after a period of neglect. The project is an extension of the old "Jugendherberge" dating from 1955. The competition brief called for more guest rooms as well as conference facilities, a public café and a more spacious foyer that could be used for public events. The youth hostel won first prize in a restricted competition among six participants in Bremen (Germany) 2003.
