    Zooviertel Carrée

In response to the brief to develop a lively, attractive and upmarket residential district, the design review process winner proposed a sensitive benchmark development tailored to the spirit of the area.

Along its Sohnstraße edge, it comprises a succession of elongated, three-storey structures that incorporate the existing façade of the headquarters building of the German Foundry Association (DGV). Moving towards the heart of the district, the transition to smaller-scale development is marked by upmarket villa-style homes set amid generous open spaces designed for leisure activities. The result is a residential neighbourhood with a strong identity achieved thanks to a coherent design and planning solution that fits cleanly yet distinctively into the surrounding built environment.
