| Berlin, Germany | 4.7 ha | COMPETITION: 1st prize, 2020

The proposed development elaborates on the historical difference between the former barracks complex and the Wilhelminian block perimeter development. The interior of the neighborhood is low-car, and pedestrian and bicycle friendly due to the many open spaces. In addition, the open spaces act as a climate-effective infrastructure for the neighborhood. Here, the integrated stormwater management is of particular importance, through which rainwater is considered a resource. Another infrastructural pillar is formed by the woody structure - providing necessary greenery and shade. The open space is equipped with basic infrastructure, either designed in a democratic process with the users or transferred to them.
