With its clear lines, transparent borders and full-scale structural mass, the new construction interposes itself significantly and sensitively into the urban structure of the town of Constance. References from the surroundings are taken up and transferred into a robust building structure.
The large traffic junction close to the Swiss border is used to accommodate a round car park in its center, which also serves as a comfortable junction for crossing bike paths.
The street to the bordering green corridor in the south will be tunneled over. An inner pedestrian street with bordering shops and apartments serves as an urban open space for the new quarter.
