Hoskins revealed as joint castle masterplan winner

Glasgow-based practice Gareth Hoskins Architects among trio of winners in contest to improve visitor experience at 17th-century Schloss Gottorf

Gareth Hoskins Architects has won joint first prize in the competition to design a masterplan for the redevelopment of Schloss Gottorf in Schleswig, northern Germany. 

Collaborating again with exhibition design consultancy Ralph Appelbaum Associates, which worked on the firm’s Culloden visitor centre and the National Museum of Scotland, Hoskins shared the victory with finalists Holzer Kobler Architekturen from Zürich and hg merz architekten of Stuttgart.

Contestants were asked for proposals to renovate and open up the 17th-century castle, designed by Nicodemus Tessin the Younger, which sits on a fortified island near the Danish border. The project includes the overhaul of state cultural collections and the reworking of barrack and stable blocks, which house archives and an art gallery, as well as the revamp of the existing Viking museum.

The three winners will be invited back for intensive workshops with Schleswig-Holstein Landesmuseen officers with a view to tabling a masterplan before the end of 2014.
