New residential district — Rheinallee, 67059 Ludwigshafen, Germany — 35,900 m² — May 2021 — Diringer & Scheidel Wohn- und Gewerbebau GmbH
Modern residential ensemble
The City of Ludwigshafen is in the midst of a transformation from a city characterized by industry to one of liveability: One of the projects that makes a key contribution here is the Rheinallee housing ensemble, which slots harmoniously into the urban context and marks a new entrance to the residential area.
The special quality of this housing in a densely populated urban area results from its high level of greening and the arrangement of structures around open courtyards. The new buildings relate to their environment: The vertical differentiation of the façades preserves the sense of scale and integrates the new buildings harmoniously into the urban context. A horizontal emphasis in the courtyard provides cohesion. The interplay between the new apartment houses and the neighbouring building results in a gateway that distinguishes the residential area.
