1. Price | Freight Station Developement


Projected with ANP Architektur- und Planungsgesellschaft mbH, Kassel

The redesign of the grounds of the former freight depot site in Tübigen is also part of the proposed urban design concept which highlights this area as a distinct address in the new district.

It opens up on the downtown area through the “Blaue Brücke” bridge in the west. The broad Quartierboulevard, which goes along the whole new city neighbourhood from the western entrance to the east, will also close the urban gap which until then characterized the area. Not only does this urban promenade open up the whole district, it also serves as a strong means of identification for the residents of the neighbourhood, for the people who work there, as well as for the whole city. On this new boulevard, different species of trees will offer seasonal variations throughout the year.

The Quartierboulevard powerfully accentuates the new residential area, especially in the spring, when the Japanese cherry trees blossom, in the early spring, when the creamy white sophora flowers bloom, and in the fall, when the leaves change colours and turn yellow, orange, and intensive red. The new street furniture, which includes double benches, invites to rest under these trees planted in various patterns.
