To neighborhood walk
The "Gründer am See" project consists of three buildings and picks up on current key trends in our society. The areas of living, working and leisure are not seen as a contradiction but are considered together. This project is primarily a family house for all generations. The two supervised children's groups are, among other things, an important service for families and single parents. In addition, further services around living were developed, which are important for a modern lifestyle.
The offerings for working at home and as your own start-up come in all sizes, shapes and costs. All non-residential uses are directly accessible via the open spaces and have their own address and entrance. In one of the structures, there are two studios/offices on the first floor, which are connected to the apartments above by stairs.
Via a ramp playfully connected to the surroundings, areas in the basement are activated as attractive space for communal uses. Despite the exposed location of the narrow building site, a protected communal courtyard embedded in the greenery is created, which seamlessly blends into the green spaces.
For a climate-resilient open space design with diverse vegetation and especially shady, large-growing trees, care was taken to allow for a maximally large earth core and to minimize underbuilt as well as sealed areas.
The strengthening of the neighborhood and the development of a "start-up community" is accompanied by social organization. The residents have access to a variety of common areas. These include a library, a music room, a winter garden, a community room and a community terrace. The range of open spaces is supplemented by the so-called "garden labs" - areas for communal gardening. In the area of mobility, in addition to a large number of bicycle parking spaces, bicycle boxes and a washing room for bicycles are available for use.
The range of apartments is supplemented by an apartment suitable for shared living with five units, communal living area and own private areas. Several apartments receive a so-called "joker room" as a small cabinet, which is assigned to the main room for a wide variety of uses.
