Development of a car-free housing quarter — Heidelberg — 9.820 m² — Deutsche Wohnwerte GmbH & Co. KG
Car-free housing quarter
The US Army Hospital site is being converted into a car-free housing quarter with a balanced mix of different apartments and strong leisure-time appeal. Sustainability aspects played a crucial role in the competition entry for an apartment block with an inner courtyard and three standalone houses. The main construction material used is timber; the high degree of prefabrication also significantly reduced construction lead times.
