Neue Mitte Wallenhorst

The original intension to locate the Alexander’s church as dominant as possible and exposed at the mountainside, thereby seeking the relation to the Annachapel at the historic Kirchweg, is now difficult to read in the grown town center of Wallenhorst. The distinctive figure of the centre of Wallenhorst is Saint Alexander’s church, raised on a mountain throne. This image has to be elaborated more clearly. The topographical play is staged on concisely terraces, which are barrier-free accessible with generous ramps. Small greenery is withdrawn for the benefit of the exemption of the remarkable old trees. Instead solitaires pilgrimages alongside the historic church path towards the church.

The relationship between Anna’s chapel and Alexander’s church, which was intended from the origin, is created by an arrangement of stairs. Thus the gently stepped church square with the green terraces of the church hill is experienced as the central square for local life. As addition there will be established small-scaled squares with outside gastronomic qualities and this way there evolve an extended landscape of the town square, which invites to stay and experiences.
