New strategies were developed for the creation of an urban quarter with a lively ground level zone at Sonnwendviertel Ost. The first pioneers have now moved in.
In contrast to conventional newly built districts, compact plots allow for small-scale urban structures. Individual plots were reserved for groups of structures and for a new type of building, the so-called Quartiershäuser. Here, planners and investors had to present their innovative concepts for utilisation in tandem, to ensure a lively quarter. After a brief tour providing an overview of the district, currently still under construction, together with the architects we visit the first residents and ground level occupants in the most recently completed Quartiershaus, by feld72.
