Visions for the future of Stein Egerta

Architecture students of the Bachelor’s degree programmes have spent a whole semester developing visions for the Stein Egerta seminar centre in Schaan. At the end of the semester, the results of this knowledge and technology transfer project were presented to the client as well as a delegation representing the municipality and the Liechtenstein government.


Architecture students of the Bachelor’s degree programmes have spent a whole semester developing visions for the Stein Egerta seminar centre in Schaan. At the end of the semester, the results of this knowledge and technology transfer project were presented to the client as well as a delegation representing the municipality and the Liechtenstein government.


Six months earlier, the Stein Egerta adult education institute had commissioned the Institute of Architecture and Planning to develop visions for the seminar centre. The inspiration behind this was the growing need to further develop the space the institute can offer so as to be able to provide up-to-date educational facilities, hire out rooms to company groups and harness the full potential of the unique site on the edge of the forest in Schaan. 

“As the demands made of adult education change, we have to move with the times, and this also applies in terms spatial planning,” said Gabi Jansen and Michael Gerner, members of the Stein Egerta management team. The idea was to come up with fundamental ideas from which new offerings can be developed. “The students’ ideas are a good basis for a vision of the future.”

Visions as intellectual foundations

In their work on site and in the studio at the University of Liechtenstein, the 14 Bachelor’s students from the design studio “Building in the park” engaged intensively with the history of the Stein Egerta site as well as the topic of adult education both today and in the future. Under the guidance of lecturer and architect Dieter Jüngling, models and plans of the students’ visions were created, which in the future will serve as the basis for an architecture competition.

“This knowledge transfer project for Stein Egerta and the municipality of Schaan has provided our students with valuable practical experience during their studies,” said Dieter Jüngling, delighted by the collaboration.

In the course of the final review of the project, the students presented their results to lecturers from the University of Liechtenstein as well as external experts: in addition to senior representatives from Stein Egerta, Daniel Hilti, the Council Leader of the municipality of Schaan, René Wille and Wolfgang Schatzmann from the Department of Structural Engineering in Schaan and Denise Ospelt from the Liechtenstein Department of Building and Infrastructure were also in attendance.

“The students from the University of Liechtenstein have incorporated the specific situation of the park and the Stein Egerta villa into their research,” stated Council Leader Daniel Hilti, giving his positive assessment of the project. “A good foundation for any further development of the Stein Egerta site.”
