Urban Living. Vacant sites over the rooftops of the city

In accordance with building regulations one could build at least three more full floors on top of the existing multi-storey car park Briesestraße: There is a vacant lot on top of the car park. In static terms one or two additional stories are feasible. By converting the existing floors and adding floors on top a unique building is created with a special atmosphere and spatial quality for different user groups (live and work). The concrete areas between the ramps
are removed, which allows daylight to reach below street level. The additional units of the 2 ½ storeys are build as a light wooden panel construction. The visibility of the past leads to special appreciation. Thus, the acceptance for a good remix in the neighbourhood is far higher than for demolition and a new beginning.
