living in an attractive landscape
Cologne needs housing in a varied mix of homes for families, who demands a new and modern way of living.
Our answer is to organize an urban garden city, that will both be in direct connection with the surrounding landscape, as an inner attractive meadow. We introduce qualities bringing buildings, urban places, yards and landscape togheter. Its result are a diversity of places and activities that will add a great social value
The area is large as 17 football pitches and one of the largest construction projects in Cologne.
