Exterior Facilities Frankfurt Riedberg, 2009 - 2013
Context! Apartment buildings arranged around a common courtyard. A distinctly readable base structure dominates the design of the open space of the new residential quarter. The formal edges of the private gardens formed by hedges and linear pathways contrast with the individually designed community areas. Three areas, each with a unique character are key to the design. The cross shaped pathway system the north is defined by meeting spaces in the centre and on the ends of the paths as well as planting and trees lining the pathways. The garden promenade leads to the residential buildings in the south. The promenade is arranged as a linear sequence with entrance areas and tree plazas framed by hedges. The central community and play areas stand in contrast to the linear structure of the courtyard by using organically and individual shapes.
