HOUSING ESTATE GROSSE DÜWELSTRASSE

Hannover / 2015

These new residential buildings in the Große Düwelstraße and Tiestestraße area in the Südstadt in Hanover blend into the urban context forming a new quarter with its own distinctive identity. The completion of the perimeter block development further accentuates the clear lines of the existing urban structure. The loose structure of the development in the patio of the block contributes to a new semi-public area with a park-like character. 

The rows of buildings on both streets are structured by two symmetrically organized individual rows with a clear address. The town villas on the slightly elevated area of the patio can be reached from both sides of the street through passageways via gently inclined ramps. An underground car park offers parking spaces for these 56 housing units. 

The appearance of these new buildings is oriented by the architecture of the existing urban structure assertively emphasizing the distinctive features of the new ensemble. The complex takes up Hanover’s typical brick architecture through facades made of thin-format brickwork with yellowish-grey stone and light jointing.
