PITZ is arisen due to the rebuilding of an existing kitchen and cantine building. The existing building was dismantled down to the steel structure and completely rebuilt. The PITZ logo was achieved by relief-styled cutting into the rendered facade. The second plaster level is developed, analogue in colour and structure to the outer level, so that the text becomes legible, merely by the casted shadows. The walls of the foyer are decorated with an abstract PITZ logo. The foyer and seminar rooms can be united to a multifunctional area by means of flexible room dividers.
Supporting the special distinctive identity of the building was the goal of integrating the artwork into the architecture. For the overall design it was very important not to use art as a seperate addition to the building but to integrate art into the architecture to develop both disciplines to an integral whole.
The design was developed in close collaboration of architects und artist, as they depend on each other. Also the acceptance of the client was of great importance so he was involved into the design process at an early stage.
The project was honored with a recognition of the BDA-building award Mecklenburg-Vorpommern 2002.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
