Design intentions
The taller part rises out of a one- to-two storey plinth zone that has incised outdoor areas and private patios, and is shifted back from the lower, differentiated block edge. The freestanding elements are articulated by stepping, incisions and the individual projecting verandas. This concept offers residents and neighbours, despite the high density, quality outdoor space, views outside and through the development, and sunlight. The principle of the floor plans is based on a simple modular system that allows different floor plan types to be places alongside each other. Each dwelling has a private outdoor space with an area of at least 8 m². A children’s day-care centre, as well as a large variety of communal outdoor areas with different qualities and types of organisation such as vegetable gardens, lawns to lie upon, sauna at roof level, children’s play areas and introverted loggias (vertical gardens) enrich this oasis for living.

Technical data
250 apartments with floor areas ranging between 50 and 150 m² Every apartment has a private outdoor space and an underground car-parking space. Total usable floor area including children’s day-care centre: ca. 22.000 m²
