Garden Land


Redesign and functional expansion

For Wilhelm Fricke GmbH für Landtechnik, D:4 built the Gartencenter Gartenland in Zeven-Aspe in 2014.

For the implementation, a 4,000 m² single-storey existing building was largely gutted inside and converted into a large exhibition and sales room with offices and a workshop centre for garden and municipal technology.

The former office building (built in 1990) was already converted into a motorhome centre in 2002. The basic structure with workshop, exhibition and administration wing was retained for the newly created garden land.

For this purpose, the south-eastern area was combined as one large exhibition area for municipal and garden technology products. Along the façade are offices, the main entrance and a consulting and sales centre. The offices were installed as free fixtures in the existing structure. This area was separated climatically and acoustically from the large exhibition area.

The rather closed existing façade was broken up in three places and redesigned with striking extensions for entrances and a large shop window area. These interventions are clearly distinguished by a different facade material. The shop window front and a glass dome provide a bright exhibition and sales area. A surrounding new façade panel visually unites the existing and new building parts.
