2022’s Grand Prize Winner

2022’s Richard Diehl Award winner was Michelle Wanitzek for her “Nomad Coworking” project.

View all the winning and runner-up submissions here.

The winning project, which Wanitzek submitted for her master’s thesis at Fakultät Gestaltung Wismar, features a coworking space and coffeeshop in a listed monument — a site identified for its architectural or historical significance — and focuses on the increasing importance of alternative and flexible workspaces. The design tackled a challenging task — working with a historical monument’s intricacies and structural limits while simultaneously preserving the protected façade and showcasing the transformation for experiential value.

“With a progressive idea of what monument protection means, Michelle designed an infrastructure in the middle of Wismar’s Old Town, which is suitable to revitalize the city and capable of giving the monument a contemporary purpose,” said the University of Wismar Dean of the Faculty of Design Prof. Dipl.-Ing. Oliver Hantke. “Her concept of multi-layered use picks up on current trends in the construction industry, including sustainability and efficiency strategy, utilizing historical buildings, revitalizing small-town structures, new forms of working environments, and providing communication structures to strengthen social cohesion.”
