Public Squares, Streets, Infrastructures

Bahnhofplatz, St.Gallen
The tense relationship between open and built-up space is what comprises the city. With attractive public squares and streets, we create livable urban spaces that form the basis for a dynamic public sphere and a vibrant city.
The antagonism between open and built-up space forms a constant in the accelerating dynamics of our living environments. Public squares and streets are the basic spatial framework of our cities and form the foundation for a multifaceted and vibrant urban space. Urban life can develop freely on these platforms for our pluralistic society. At a time when worlds of experience are becoming more and more virtual, we create a counterbalance that once again gives public space more place as a stage for direct, interpersonal communication.
Der Ausbau der Bahninfrastruktur in Liestal führt zu einer Verbreitung des Gleiskörpers. Auf einer Länge von rund vier Kilometern entstehen beidseits der Bahntrasse neue Plätze, Grünflächen und ökologische Ausgleichsflächen.

Railway station forecourt, Wittstock/Dosse

Within the framework of the State Garden Show in Wittstock/Dosse in 2019, the city planned a comprehensive rearrangement and redesign of the train station grounds. The empty train station building is being renovated to be used in the future for administration and healthcare. What emerges is a representative train station forecourt, with traffic and parking for vehicles in the surroundings of the train station reorganized, and adjacent access roads upgraded and/or refurbished
The redesigned Bahnhofsplatz (train station plaza) in Fribourg gives the municipality a modern entrance to the city. Removing the canopy that covers the plaza today provides a historically unique opportunity. The “Jo Siffert Fountain” by Jean Tinguely can be presented anew in a dignified framework on the plaza.

RhB-Bridge, Reichenau

Where the Vorderrhein and Hinterrhein Rivers flow together, the second bridge over the Hinterrhein for two-lane development supplements the existing, landmarked lattice framework bridge.

Train station area, Bad Salzungen

Der Kurort Bad Salzungen erhält mit der Neusortierung des Bahnhofareals, dem Ausbau des alten Bahnhofsgebäudes und der Neuplanung des Goethaparks eine neue und attraktive Verbindung zwischen Bahnhof und Zentrum.
Between the lake and the train station, in front of the co-op renovated by Burkhardt und Partner Architekten, more space is given to the magnificent plane trees with a round bench. The shape of the bench traces the outline of a plane tree leaf. It provides generous space for sitting – next to, opposite and with one another, one time inward toward the gravel surface, one time facing the square – always with opportunities to relax.
With the clarifying and reinforcing of the spatial boundaries, the various urban spaces are structured into an open, pulsing square and a calm, contemplative park.

Bahnhofplatz, St.Gallen

As an open, public space, the new Bahnhofplatz signals overview, point of arrival, and hub. Groups of trees on the edge of the square provide welcoming areas for spending time.

Town Center, Neuhausen am Rheinfall

The different traffic-reduced streets and squares are becoming more attractive as a result of a superordinate, spatial tree and equipment concept. A uniform surfacing of asphalt stretches between the facades. The various individual spaces coalesce into a larger whole.

Center, Bassersdorf

From the very beginning, the project was planned with the participation of the population. What has thus been created is a spacious, urban square, on which the two striking design elements, the pavilion and the water basin set into the ground, stand in relation to one another as spatial and content-related counterparts.
