Quartiersentwicklung Glesiener Strasse Leipzig

2nd prize for the development of the urban quarter Glesiener Straße in Leipzig


Together with the architects of yellow z, we have intensively dealt with the transformation of the Leipzig quarter "Glesiener Straße" in a non-open competition. To complement the existing "grove" on the inside, which forms an identity-creating "green centre" in the new quarter, we developed three neighbourhood squares that enter into a dialogue with the existing and new buildings.

The jury evaluated our design as follows (excerpt): "The re-use of one of the factory halls with sports facilities is seen very positively (...), which is again connected to a small public space. Overall, the public spaces are well dimensioned and interconnected. In detail, the use of rainwater in the street space is very correct, which can decisively improve the conditions for street trees, especially in hot periods.”
