Construction work begins to upgrade and extend the Uferstrasse I Frankenberg

In collaboration with Oppermann Ingenieure and EHS Ingenieure

Construction work has begun to upgrade and extend the Uferstrasse in Frankenberg. The former main road is due to be transformed into a wide promenade. Traffic lanes will be narrowed in order to provide wider pedestrian and cycle paths, plus areas for resting. In addition to remodelling the roadside area, the natural environment adjacent to it alongside the River Eder will be improved, and riverside piers will offer new areas for relaxation. Once the tributary river Nemphe has undergone re-naturing, it will form the central element of the new riverside park.

Hotel at Lake Titisee | Saveris on the Lake

1st Prize | In collaboration with Franken Architekten GmbH

Here the external landscaping has been adapted in response to the local building tradition. Regional fruit tree varieties and the deciduous trees typical of the Black Forest are elements that link in with the existing landscape. Retaining walls and paved surfaces are made of traditionally used local materials, underlining the connection with the region. Visualization: © Franken Architekten

Luisenhöfe | Aachen

1st Prize | In collaboration with Hector3

The scheme take up existing urban imprint and further extends it. The main access route spans from Mariabrunnstrasse towards the bunker. The resulting urban arrangement is formed by the space between the Werkshof and the Kastanienhof. There will be a transition between public and semi-private space.
The residential buildings will be accessed via the public roads. This arrangement results in protected and private spaces that will encourage people to spend time there.
An urban scheme is emerging that will be easily recognisable, with its own distinctive character within the neighbourhood.

This will bring a sense of order to the space, further underscored by the slender bus stops roofs, shaped like leaves.
