Quarter on Moosrosenweg, Hamburg , 2017, honorable mention

The aim of our design is to give the entire area a spatial centre. The Moosrosenweg is the backbone and identity-creating centre of the new district. We propose a dense, urban-looking quarter with clearly defined street, square and courtyard situations. The sizes and cubic volumes of the new buildings are based on the block structures of the pre-war period, but at the same time seek a dialogue with the existing buildings. This creates a “breathing” block structure that is formed by the public space in-between, opens up to the edges and interlocks with the green areas. The result is a sequence of different squares and streets. The entrance to the quarter is flanked by three head buildings, which enclose a lively forecourt with public uses and catering facilities, located in second row and thus protected from noise.
