SITUATION AND CONCEPT
The former Alfred Delp barracks are to become a new part of Donauwörth, a piece of the city with a strong identity at the interface between settlement and landscape. The new quarter is linked to the town and redefines the edge of the town and the transition to the landscape. As many of the housing forms on offer as possible are intended to convey the feeling of living in a detached single-family house while at the same time being economical. The result is denser, clearly defined, different and varied spaces (and places) with high amenity qualities. The project consistently follows the existing topography and arranges flat typologies according to location.
NEIGHBOURHOOD, SPACES AND PLACES
The new development forms very different transitional spaces along Sternschanzenstrasse. The new quarter is interwoven with the existing part of the settlement via two plazas. Public uses are located at the neighbourhood square: Shops, cafés, practices, the exhibition pavilion. The more northerly square, on the other hand, is characterised more by communal facilities and is clearly "greener". This angular square leads to two larger landscaped spaces, the so-called landscape courtyards. They link the park city with the landscape, and here there are depressions for retention. The landscape courtyards give a glimpse of what lies behind and thus bring the qualities of the open landscape to the east into the neighbourhood.
Other special places are the communal courtyards, which are accessed via traffic-calmed areas (shared spaces) and are grouped around them. These spaces form small neighbourhoods at the edge of the quarter. They consist of row-shaped structures (terraced houses, multi-storey housing) and point-shaped structures (townhouse clusters, 3 and 4 storey buildings, loft housing).
ORGANISATION AND DEVELOPMENT
The neighbourhood is made accessible to motor vehicles via a generous corridor that can also be used by buses. The access corridor connects to Sternschanzenstraße in the far south and in the far north. In addition, the buildings along Sternschanzenstrasse are accessed via the squares located there. The road widens at spatially defined points into shared spaces where communal parking spaces can be found. Some of the houses are accessible via residential paths and underground garages. The overall aim is to offer the most efficient car access possible.
There are very different typologies in the area. In principle, we were very concerned to develop as many alternatives as possible to the detached single-family house. Another goal was to offer housing types that allow for different flat sizes. There are very small (trainees, singles) and very large flats (loft living as a family, assisted living communities), so that people can live in the neighbourhood in all phases of life.
A_ Closed courtyards
The closed courtyards along Sternschanzenstrasse serve to create space and at the same time provide sound insulation. The buildings are planned with 3 storeys and thus fit in well with the scale of the surroundings. At the same time, they bring a new typology to Donauwörth that is particularly suitable for development by cooperatives.
B_ Rows along the contour lines
The row-shaped development develops along the contour lines and traces the topography. Here, terraced houses are found which, depending on their orientation, are equipped with a carport on the plot, a garage in the building or communal parking.
C_ Point houses
The point houses are oriented towards the landscape in the east and form the new edge of the village in the transition to the landscape. Two taller point buildings mark the neighbourhood along Sternschanzenstraße, one to the south and one to the north, each as a prelude.
