There is another way.

This is also true for architecture and urban planning, if we understand both as parts of systems. We think of designing, planning, and building as team work enabling the best ideas to prevail. For this reason CITYFÖRSTER works as a partnership supported by an interdisciplinary network. With you we develop better solutions for working and learning, housing and living.


The new "District Landscape Dietenbach" sets high standards for its completeness and its autonomy. It does not see itself as a mere settlement on the outskirts, but as a densification of diverse spatial and urban elements such as districts, boulevard, center, neighborhoods, junctions, landscape as well as building structures and programs - condensed and superimposed - they merge to a vibrant district, which is independent in his structure and at the same time integrated into the larger urban context and landscape. Four individual districts are oriented towards two large open spaces that flow through the new district as well as to the large landscape scenery of Freiburg. In addition to the small-scale road network, the boulevard connects the districts. Here you will find a variety of divers usable squares, which stand for urban openness and provide orientation. A new center serves as a local supply center and common reference point with symbolic centrality.

During the Dutch Design Week CITYFÖRSTER took part in the BPDlab#4 design challenge, and collaborated with Fien Dekker of Rainaway on the "Smart Rainbarrel XXL 3.0 Deluxe" - an integrated system to (re)use rainwater within buildings and simultaneously create awareness. We would like to thank BPD for their invitation, and are proud to present the final results here!

CITYFÖRSTER at the Dutch Design Week

In 14-month planning and realisation stage a baroque hunting castle in Seesen was redeveloped with a focus on simplicity and clarity at a reasonable price. Also the permanent exhibition of the museum was conceived and moved.
Central attention at the rebuilding work was the restoration of spatial relations and structures, as well as the creation of a high-quality, modern but timeless showroom, which is able to take on the various exhibits, including specialties such as 'The world's longest piano-string'. The exhibition has a modern pedagocial approach and offers attractions and information for all age groups. Additionally, value was placed to increase children participation through experimental- and multimedia stations. In this way the museum can be accessed by a variety of senses, understanding through seeing, hearing and touching.
