The new construction of the building of the publishing house Schwäbischer Verlag units the different functions of the publisher in the city centre of Ravensburg.

The Dutch architecture office of Wiel Arets won the international competition in 2008. The new building consists of six elements with a glass façade. The design of Wiel Arets follows the example of the neighbouring town houses with planted spaces between them. A transparent fencing in form of a glass enclosure gives the building a remarkable appearance.
