In a neighbourhood which is the focus of an


urban renewal project, a narrow site extends
the entire width of a city block dating to the
Grnderzeit period, thereby connecting two
parallel streets. The perimeter block development previously had gaps at this spot,
and garages obstructed what had once
been a path between Rosenheimer Strasse
and Lothringer Strasse. The architect's
concept involved restructuring the site and
increasing its density; this allowed him to fill
in the gaps and create a semi-public pedestrian passage. The new complex consists
of three separate, five-storey structures that
are strung along the passage and, in combination with the buildings flanking the site,
form two courtyards. While the building on
the southwest part of the site, on Rosenheimer Strasse, is an addition to the adjacent
hotel, the two other buildings contain a total
of 16 condominiums. Their purchasers were
to a great extent already residents of this
neighbourhood. The concept takes into account that different tenants have different
needs and provides flexible floor plans for
the residential units: with the exception of a
services core in the middle of the space, the
arrangement of the interior walls is completely free. An open floor plan would be possible, as would a series of discrete rooms.
The uniform design of the facade, employing
floor-to-ceiling ribbons of glazing and grey
stucco, ties the three new buildings together,
allowing them to be perceived as one ensemble. Thanks to the alternating windows
and solid panels on the northeast facade,
partition walls may be introduced at different
positions. In each unit, the entire length of
the living area facing the courtyard to the
south is fronted with a loggia enclosed by
glazed sliding panels. This extra facade with individually operable glazed units and
sun-protection elements - provides noise
abatement and serves as a climate control
skin. Thus, the protected outdoor spaces
can also be used during the cooler months.
The arrangement of the transparent and solid elements, coupled with the colourful solar
blinds and different types of reflected light,
animates the clearly structured facade.
