Example: Local Development Concept ELR

Commissioned by the local authorities, we elaborated strategies for the development of the village Gschlachtenbretzingen in Germany. On various scales, the potentials and qualities were first analysed in order to define areas of higher density and green space. The former farmers village is now a residential area near the regional hub of Schwäbisch Hall.

The task included as well the proposal for infrastructure, renewable energy and handling of the aging society.

Example: Community Centre Berghof, Germany

In direct interaction with the clients representatives, we did all phases ( concept to construction management and documentation) of a community centre in Rosengarten, Germany. This building includes an intense energy concept with passive and active strategies.

In the beginning design variations got explored, lateron acoustic simulation and construction detailing was done.

The building is used for partys, music performances and religious activities. It is situated in direct proximity to the existing church and therefore needed to adress issues of heritage and accessibility.
