Wettbewerbserfolg in Mannheim
blocher partners was successful in a competition to fill a gap in a building in Mannheim's city centre, taking into account listed buildings: the design for student housing was unanimously chosen as the winner.
The concept: A timber modular construction with 103 prefabricated room modules as a stock-conserving construction method reduces the inner-city burden by shortening the construction time on the one hand and delivers an appropriately high quality on the other. By using natural materials, a high feel-good factor and a good indoor climate are achieved.
The eco-efficient design saves grey energy and meets the highest sustainability requirements, with the cradle-to-cradle concept being an important point. Lively communication zones, such as a student café on the ground floor, form special modules in the five-storey development.
