Nordweststadt Archipelago
Re-arrangement of a Social Housing Estate

Our proposal is based on the impression that the current organisation and design of the area does neither create the generosity of an urban park nor the intimacy of a communal garden. The Northwest City 'hangs' between sizes - what it needs is an intermediate scale.

The creation of communal open spaces around single buildings and the merging of several communal areas into neighbourhoods create a new dimension. The sum of the islands creates a memorable residential park landscape - a green archipelago in the North-West of Frankfurt am Main.
