Competition Wulffsche Siedlung

Design for a new layout of the settlement Wulffsche Siedlung in Hamburg

The brief called for a longterm upgrade of the neighbourhood. The urban concept envisioned a gardencity-like approach with green axis, tennant gardens as well as car-free courtyards. core of the design is a car-free street with multiple squares and yards attached along its path. During the next 15 years approximately 700 appartements ought to be build.


The former two-storey buildings will be replaced by newly built three-storey to four-storey ones.

Contemporary floorplans improve the quality of living greatly.

Balconies and facade elements make for horizontally orientated buildings.
Another important element was linking the new green axis to existing paths and parks. Weaving old and new together
