urban quarter

2nd Prize – invited competition 2020
The competition area in Graz is located on a highly frequented, traffic-loaded street network, with high-storey buildings in the immediate vicinity. The location of the building, along the edge of the street, creates noise-protected zones with park landscapes in the south-west, towards which the apartments are oriented. The greening of the street-side facade in the residential floors (3rd-8th floor) is valuable for the surrounding, loud and hot street space. The structures in the base zone are grouped around a sloping level – a 3-dimensional space as a green landscape.

In order to create new qualities in this location, living in an urban city quarter requires diversity, functional variety and distinctiveness.
