To neighborhood walk
About 30% of the total floor space of the building is available for commercial use. On the ground floor, there is the Montessori school “Sowiedu” and a large creative workshop for people with disabilities.
The building itself is divided into two staircases connected by a semi-public stairwell—the “scala publica”. It is open to all users and accommodates a cinema, a library and a gallery.
The apartments are located in the lower part of the building on floors 1 to 3, and in the tower on floors 2 to 7. The top floors are occupied by communal areas.
The project "Grüner Markt" is characterised by the mixed use of the space as a neighborhood house. The low part of the house offers space on the ground floor for the Montessori school "Sowiedu" and a large creative workshop for people with disabilities. But many other businesses now also call the Grüner Markt their home.
With their vision and the design of the common areas, a building group has laid the foundation for living in the Grüner Markt. The house community is lively and organized sociocratically. The sociocracy enables democratic participation.
"Grüner Markt" is particularly characterized by the mixed use of the areas. The planners provide insight into the project.
As a discussion platform on the six topics of stakeholders, mixed use, public space, housing, mobility and architecture, this series of events invites you to wander through the new neighborhood at Helmut-Zilk-Park.
