    Don’t be put off by the cuteness! Arkadien Winnenden is a hardcore industrial regeneration project. A diversity of high performance components make this the world’s most sustainable neighbourhood and provides a fresh new vision for people-friendly and resource productive suburbs.

    Mixed architectural typologies are kept a cohesive neighbourhood thanks to the appealing Mediterranean colour concept and “garden city” quality of the streetscapes. Water sensitive urban design provides a distinctive urban character. Street corners are mini-plazas and places to chat with your neighbour or for kids to kick a ball. Although the streetscapes are distinctively pedestrian, a shared circulation concept means that the site is fully accessible for vehicles, with parking options in an underground garage, carports, and parking spots neatly tucked away between gardens on the unique load-bearing planting substrate. The unit density is softened through the presence of nature in the form of generous planting, the stunning lake at the heart of the development and the restored adjacent creek with a recreational path and play areas integrated into retention meadows.

    Climate adaptation: a city plaza is restored as a new multi-generational social space with integrated water infrastructure. The film shows the opening ceremony in July 2011.

    Zollhallen Plaza is new counterpart for the historic customs hall which was restored in 2009. The plaza is a fine example of water sensitive urban design, as it is disconnected from the sewer system. Beautiful planters provide infiltration points, and subsurface gravel trenches with innovative in-built filter medium reduce the hydraulic overload on the sewer system. Indented plaza areas create a surface flood zone. No rain water is fed to the sewer system, instead the groundwater table is recharged.

    The design plays with the historic past of the site which was a railyard.Timeless and multifunctional benches recalled break noses of railtracks, and old railtracks are inlaid into the paving. A bright grove of cherry trees provide the perfect amount of shade, while the infiltration planters with perrenials and ornamental grasses give an attractive softness.

    100% of the hardscape materials are high-quality demolition materials recycled from the old railyard. This makes sense not just from a resource management point of view, but harmonises the new clean modern design with the historic architecture of the customs hall.

    Winner of the World Architecture Festival Landscape of the Year 2012. Watch how Singapore has transformed a utilitarian drain into a natural meandering river. The new river now runs through the centre of Bishan - Ang Mo Kio Park and is fully integrated with the rest of the park's design.

    A city square with rainwater recycling water features and subsurface infiltration trenches.

    This short film is a poetical introduction to our project at Heiner-Metzger-Platz, in the German city Neu-Ulm on the banks of the Danube. As the former main square fronting the train station, this plaza is a crutial building block in the inner city development scheme towards the Danube River and grounds of the federal garden show of 2008. Initial ideas for this project where developed by students as school projects. Atelier Dreiseitl took these ideas and developed them in an urban design vocabulary. Aesthetic and contemporary design were defined as the guiding design principles.

    A one day workshop with the students at Atelier Dreiseitl gave opportunity to discuss the preliminary design. The students were able to directly influence the design, which brings with it a high acceptance of the final design and a sense of ownership for the students.

    The fundamental design idea is based on the differentation of three distinctive zones: The field of diagonal pavers is interrupted by a field of sand and a permeable surfacing. From this, the tree canopy emerges. A climbing wall, a table football and a large-scale chess board offer opportunity for play. A water feature, that was tested and developed in full scale models, is the eye-catcher of the plaza and is visible from a distance. Four meter high veils of water descends into a tranquil pool with a water depth of 5cm. As vertical elements, these veils serve as accents and buffer the intrusive streetscape from the plaza. The sounds of the water contributes significantly to the atmosphere of this urban plaza. Potable water is used for the water feature and is collected in a cistern. It is circulated and technically cleaned.
