significant urban identity
Güterbahnhof Ehrenfeld is the last left-over area to develop into housing in downtown Cologne. The city therefore sets high demands for a good environmentally planning towards a carbon neutral and dense living area. Our proposal focuses on a social and flexible theme that will bring a variation with different urban and landscape elements. In addition to connect and integrate the new hub to the surrounding city.
Overall with a strong architectural expression that will bring a significant identity to Ehrenfeld.
