Bad Neustadt Town Hall

Bad Neustadt, Germany, 2017

Puristic in design, versatile in function

In the new town hall in Bad Neustadt, the filigree and functional vertical stacking chair hero plus ties in perfectly with the design concept.

The hero plus stacking chair perfectly rounds off the function of the town hall with its high level of sitting comfort in keeping with the impressive acoustics.

Too small, impractical and outdated energy technology were some of the complaints about the old town hall in Bad Neustadt. As renovation no longer proved viable, the decision was made to construct the new building on the same site and the architect and engineering firm pbr in Jena was commissioned to take on the project. The result is a modern and multifunctional event hall, for which the architect firm was awarded the German Design Award and the Iconic Award.

The compact structure with its eye-catching sculptural shape reflects the spur-like site. The stone façade presents an exciting interplay between open and closed spaces, which are consolidated by an overhanging roof. In the large hall with its specially designed acoustic ceiling and special wall cladding for an optimal sound experience, there is space for 800 people to sit and standing room for up to 1,200. The town hall also houses a smaller lecture hall for up to 120 people and other event rooms, areas for hall management and the city’s tourism offices.

The requirement profile for the seating was a clear, modern design language that goes hand in hand with the purist style of the building, simple panic-safe linking and the possibility of space-saving, vertical stacking. The Brunner hero plus multi-purpose chair successfully masters all of these requirements. The innovative multifunctional element MFE plus allows for the linking of armrests and an integrated panic-safe row linking device. Up to twenty chairs can be stacked vertically with a self-centring function. The MFE protects against scratches and noise. A 30 mm higher seat shell available as an optional extra and through liner ensure maximum sitting comfort.
