In the course of the general renovation of the Schwerin Castle, the former ballroom has been redesigned and transformed into a functional plenary hall for the state parliament within a period of five years. The former ballroom with the adjoining conference, lobby, visitor and press areas have been reinterpreted in a contemporary way and restores the original room proportions of the “Golden Hall”, which was destroyed by fire in 1913. The design concept by Dannheimer & Joos Architects underlines the historical spatial references as well as the original routes and visual axes, resulting in the emergence of a harmonious combination of history and modernity.

The architecture-integrated, three component lighting concept provides a flexible lighting system that can be individually adapted to the respective room usage, creating a functional and emblematic dynamic at the same time.
