A flowing landscape connects two urban districts with attractive mixed use.

A landscape moves through the block structures, opening their inner areas and thus connecting the different semi-public and public areas. The result is a spacious natural space that flows through the entire area. Two blocks rest on this busy landscape. These create high density urban neighborhoods with maximum generosity, permeability and views.

All apartments benefit from the overgrown and soundproofed courtyards. The level of the buildings is raised by 6 m, the landscape below connects the construction areas, the changing topography meanders through the complexes. On the exposed the noise situation is reacted by all residential areas are oriented to quiet courtyards or park areas. The solar wall and a web-oriented photovoltaic facade also take on an additional function as a sound barrier. In the transition to Science Tower and List-Halle, an urban situation for the new district will be created with the public square and a gastro line.
