The spacious courtyard ensemble of the competition area has a very special quality. The church of St. Gabriel to the north and the magnificent tree population create a unique atmosphere. The project's main task is to strengthen the character of the courtyard and let both the new and the existing residential buildings benefit from it. With the newly created higher density, the special character of the place should continue to be experienced by all residents. One objective of the design is to preserve the valuable tree population almost entirely.
The new buildings adapt to the conditions of the site and the tree population and take into account the distance to the existing buildings. At the same time, they form differentiated spaces that make the entire courtyard permeable and thus experienceable.
The two buildings each house two houses, which are organised as 4- and 5-unit dwellings (2-unit dwellings on the 4th floor). The flexibility of the flat sizes is ensured by switchable rooms, which make it possible to adjust the flat key.
The design of the façades is developed from the surrounding buildings. The light-coloured masonry façades of the new buildings are based on the colours of the existing residential buildings and their structure and materiality on the clinker bricks of the church.
