Qualities in detail
The neighbourhood plan establishes rules for construction on a high level of abstraction, namely that of urban development. However, in order for it to work on the large scale, it must also add up on the small scale.
Public open spaces and meeting places facilitate social contact.
The quality of the design is guaranteed in cooperation with the municipality. An architectural competition is held for the square Bahnhofplatz and the high-rise.
Land consumption per person is reduced by means of optimised usage units, multiple uses and new forms of accommodation.
Arcades, awnings, sun canopies, open roofing and trees protect against the weather and enable pleasant recreation in the open spaces.
The structural density and fine-meshed interconnection with the surroundings enable optimal use of the limited land available at a top location.
Thanks to the nuanced provision of thoroughfares in the neighbourhood, everything is within easy walking distance.
The bus stops and direct access to the railway station make public transport attractive. The underground bicycle parking facility under the new Bahnhofplatz square facilitates the popular combination of bicycle and train.
Simple built structures, as well as the use of local and recyclable materials, reduce energy requirements and emissions during construction.
Flat green roofs and outdoor spaces designed to be close to nature aid biodiversity and the microclimate. Part of the demand for electricity is covered by photovoltaics.
A water feature that can be experienced offers a space for play and fun, adds variety to the urban look and provides a way to cool down on hot summer days.
Gaps between the buildings guarantee good ventilation and allow interesting views within.
Different building sizes and typologies enable a diverse range of flat sizes, forms of accommodation and mixed uses. This promotes the neighbourhood's social and demographic mix.
