This is how we interpret our development plan for the entire Maikäfersiedlung.
The project of the new estate centre is a blending of usages with residential and other living forms: maisonettes, atrium units or apartments with 1.5 to 5 rooms are mixed with offices and shops and a community meeting point. Glazed loggias offer effective noise protection, serve as integrated open space and guarantee generosity in the apartments.
One speciality: the inwardly facing top-lit atriums in the apartments on the third storey. The staircases, halls and landings, which are generously designed to be more than just access zones, are connected to a community room. For the subsidised housing sector, this is unusual living quality, and is mixed with offices and shops.
