Following the example of Mediterranean urban spaces, on this inner-city brownfield, the former tramway depot Heidestrasse, evolved a new urban quarter. Integrating two listed buildings and an apartment house from around 1900, high-quality multi-storey housing has been created. It combines housing, shopping, and gastronomy. The new buildings follow the typologies of the existing quarter. They integrate into the urban context by their materiality (clinker-cladded base, light-coloured plaster-facade) and by their scale. The buildings are separately readable. While the balconies open towards the green and calm courtyard, the apartments open towards the urban space with their loggias. The depot, converted into a supermarket, with its filigrane steel construction and the also listed frame house stand in enthralling contrast to the the cubic new buildings.
