1st prize competition 2016

The popular district in the south of Cologne is being given a new urban accent. On the site of a disused factory close to the train station, a green and largely car-free residential area is being created. For the attractive site, centrally located between the green belt and the Rodenkirchen market square, JSWD first developed the urban planning basics.
In the first of three construction phases, 13 point-and-beam-shaped buildings with 272 one- to five-room apartments, two commercial units and a daycare center surround a green center. The light-colored buildings are structured floor by floor by corner balconies, by colored accents and by staggering the building heights.
