• Central square

    Leinefelde (D)

    Recompaction of a prefab building district.

    The plan seeks to define urban spaces in a clear, diverse manner.

    Narrow laneways, disrupted alignments, square expansion, lines of sight which open up discreetly, varied road profiles. Arcades increase recreational quality regardless of weather, defining two urban areas: the town hall square and the “Obereichsfeldplatz”. The latter is bordered by the “Obereichsfeldhalle“ and the new town hall building. The former library will be preserved and renovated.



  • With its existing arcade, it forms the top of the square’s eastern end. The town hall square opens out towards the lake and park like a funnel. The upper levels are designed for residential purposes. This will ideally be a colourful, diverse mix of barrier-free multi-storey dwellings and townhouses with floor plans and façade designs rendered as unique as possible. The large, monofunctional prefab buildings are to be countered with a high level of variety and small-scale elements.
