Project description
The new fishing centre was built near the shores of Lake Constance. The basement was built as a solid construction and is used as a pump cellar. Most of the building is single-storey and is made of wood. The two-storey part has a solid-construction ground floor and an upper floor made of wood. As a result of the high groundwater level, the excavation of the cellar was carried out with the aid of a sheet pile retaining wall.
