Karlsruhe - Grünwettersbach - Competition Entry
12/2019-03/2020 - Karlsruhe (Germany)

Since there is a huge demand of housing, the city of Karlsruhe is carefully looking for new sites for development. One of these sites is located at the edge of Grünwettersbach, a small suburban district nicely situated in the south east of Karlsruhe.

I had the chance to contribute to the work of the team BAEK Architekten and STEFAN TISCHER Landscape Architect from Berlin.

We proposed a seam of contemporary housing typologies, which comes with a net of high quality public realm. In addition landscape features such as multiple common yards, which are connected to the surrounding fields, a trough-trench system and finely woven footways lead to an upgrade of the existing settlement and provide an attractive housing environment for a broad social spectrum.
