Kalkumer Schloßallee | Düsseldorf

3rd Prize | In collaboration with schneider+schumacher

Close to the Rhine in the Kaiserswerth district, a nature-oriented and sustainable district is to be created in line with the “Landscape shapes the city” concept. The identity is characterized by the integration of the landscape and the mix of housing types. The squares and streets follow the principle of the sponge city and are characterized by a high proportion of unsealed surfaces. The entrance to the new quarter is formed by a large square that connects the train station, the school and the new residential quarter. Various meeting and recreation areas will be created here, which will be structured by large green spaces. Attractive public squares and play areas without traffic congestion will be created in the residential quarter. Semi-public residential courtyards and private and communal green spaces create communicative neighborhoods.
