• Guesthouse Textile Academy, Mönchengladbach
  • Guesthouse Textile Academy, Mönchengladbach

The guest house is located opposite the textile-covered main building of the Textile Academy NRW in the city of Mönchengladbach. In contrast to its conspicuous neighbor, the guest house has a restrained design. Still, both buildings enter into a dialogue and form a harmonious ensemble. Together with the outdoor areas between them, the two buildings create an inviting "campus within the campus" of the Niederrhein University of Applied Sciences.

The guest house has 59 rooms, some of which can be connected, accommodating more than 100 people. A bistro, kitchen and bar, lounge areas with games, a fitness and relaxation room create opportunities for encounters and collaboration. As in the textile academy, exposed concrete and furniture made of oak or matt HPL in dark tones dominate in the interiors of the guest house. But an eleven meter tall color installation in the central atrium, which sop architekten realized in cooperation with the artist Heinz Mack, provides a color spectacle on every floor.
