Parks that can be utilized in diverse ways can significantly improve quality of life in the city. og-page_kwd: Landscape Architecture, Projects, Parks and Promenades og-page_url: [open] og-page_img: [open]

Parks and Promenades

The robust and simple design elements in our designs, the “spatial frameworks,” create the basis for flexible potential uses. The park can thus react to changes dynamically and make a sustainable contribution to the urban landscape.
Anyone who has spent time in a park on a summer day knows how multilayered the utilization demands are. It is also necessary to take into account the ecological, urban-development, and design requirements. Our park concepts facilitate diverse uses, which are constantly negotiated anew in social discourse and can be adapted to current needs. Today, the multifaceted ways in which a park can be used is an important indicator of a self-assured city. In an era of global migration and ecological crisis, the communal experience in parks is part of the basis of a vibrant society.
A consistent framework of trees consisting of indigenous tree species frames the future district park. Toward the existing and new residential area, this framework is permeable and again and again permits views in and out. Toward Thurgauerstrasse, the framework of trees consistently opens up and provides space for a spacious, inviting entrance area, which anchors the appearance of the park on the main thoroughfare, Thurgauerstrasse.
The new bridge grows out of the municipality of Sonnenberg like a building, spans the street, and is inserted into the south of the valley landscape. The park on the rooftop landscape links the city with the autobahn park in the south and itself represents an important local recreation area.
The Park am Seebogen is distinguished by its favorable location with respect to the new elevated railway in the Seestadt Aspern. It forms the spatial backbone that links all the parts of the park with one another as a mile for urban use. A framework of trees with alternating rows frames an open clearing. From a centrally positioned park balcony, one can let one’s gaze wander to the nearby lake.

Promenade II, Sankt Peter-Ording

The open space concept incorporates the basic principles of the architecture. Islands of vegetation at the main entrance clearly separate the individual functions. Basic access for vehicles to the plot of land is concentrated along the building so as to be able to create a high-quality space for spending time along the ship canal with promenade.
The primary goal was to preserve the existing design vocabulary while simultaneously strengthening the landscape park character by restoring visual contact with the Spree. Doing away with oversized path areas was also an aim. The existing structure of the beds was retained. The composition of the planting has been interpreted in a contemporary manner, with the color themes taken over and carried forward.
For the International Building Exhibition IBA in Hamburg, Harburg is receiving a park that offers varied park scenery along with historical heritage. Dense groves of trees on the sides open up sight axes to the surrounding waters of the harbor. The slightly elevated site of the former castle is accentuated.
Curving terraces surmount the striking difference in heights between the Novartis Campus Park and the bank of the Rhine. The language of forms, inspired by the force of the current, interweaves the two spheres of the park with the site at the Rhine, and creates a unique zone along the riverbank.
A contiguous “veil of trees” anchors Rudolf-Bednar-Park in the future district of the city. Under its canopy, there are various attractions, from the skater facility to the tranquil Quartiergarten. Orange steles with play equipment call to mind the reeds that once grew on the Danube floodplain.

Gleisbogen, Zürich

The strategy proposed takes up the process of change in the planning area and develops a dynamic from it. The backbone consists of a 5 to 10 meter wide band that can be experienced and traversed as a walking and cycling path on the red concrete surface, and that sends a new signal in the industrial district with a striking pedestrian bridge.
