PRACTICE Urban Design Scale


An urban quarter was to be proposed with public and commercial programs and highly differentiated housing typologies for a changing urban society. The forms of co-habitation proposed comprise assisted living, co-housing and live-work units, duplex and triplex units and apartments with roof gardens. The focus is maintaining the park‘s landscape character as an essential quality for new urban housing. Ensembles with 3 volumes grouped around an open semi-private, intimate courtyard are proposed which are loosely woven into the fabric of the public park. Even in the future the park will thus be read as an intact entity, without being segregated into isolated building constellations.
