Bergedorf West is confronted with the typical challenges of a 1950s / 1960s housing estate: Few used open spaces, monotonous building structures without centers and orientation points as well as an insufficient structure for foot and bicycle traffic.
In order to make Bergedorf fit for the future, the housing estate is being restructured and programmatically mixed up. Two open space bands - 1x "stream band", 1x "tree band" - structure the settlement structure in an east-west direction: "Bergedorf becomes mountain villages. New innovative building types enrich the three emerging subspaces. They increase the mix of use and housing, strengthen neighborhood life through public and communal first floors and create lively meeting places within the three neighborhoods. The structuring open space bands connect the three mountain villages, offer sports and recreation facilities and at the same time provide air conditioning, rainwater management and strengthen biodiversity.
