Realization Competition 2nd Price

An ensemble consisting of seven accurately positioned buildings takes up the typology of the surrounding residential buildings and develops both an independent as well as distinctive urbanistic image of a sophisticated urban residential complex. These new buildings of five to six storeys integrate well into the urban scale, developing open urban spaces with varying characteristics, which encourage enjoyable stays, offer stimulating views, convincingly linking the construction area with its surroundings. The courtyard at the centre of the premises, could develop into a communal meeting point which the residents can identify with.
