On the currently still commercial property in Munichs Englschalking district, CollignonArchitecture is planning four new residential buildings with a total of 160 partially subsidized apartments. Located between the railway line, Barlowstraße and Brodersenstrasse, here an attractive new residential address is created on the eastern edge of the district, which provides superior residential quality.In the single-stage, restricted competition, Collignon's design convinced with its soft, rounded building bodies, which blend harmoniously into the surrounding small-scale development structure. The facades of the four future buildings show a free game of open and closed parts in different colours. They seem easy and playful and add an identity-forming, charismatic face to the building ensemble.Attractive and versatile floor plans feature the flat cuts for individual needs. The apartments with floor-to-ceiling windows in spacious living areas all open to the sun. The larger apartments also have additional benefits – either an additional dining area, pantry, closet, storeroom or a large bathroom.The park-like space around the new residential buildings with dense trees shields them from the railway track and reduces the noise of the city together with the sound-isolating glass wall to a minimum. All apartments of the upper floors comprise loggias for an even 'greener' living, the ground floor apartments all have private gardens. The spacious open areas affect into the apartments.In contrast, the public open spaces in the area along the Barlowstrasse and the Brodersenstrasse preserve the character of light tree groves. Under the high-setting crowns of loosely distributed large trees play and sports areas for older children and lounges can be found for the residents. Play areas for small children are being placed relating to the private green between the new buildings.

The project area east of the Bautzener Strasse in Berlin Schöneberg is positioned between late nineteenth century buildings and a large, partly obsolete area of rail tracks. It profits from a large amount of green spaces and parks as well as from wide spaces and long views over the railway land – quite untypical for an inner city location.Our master plan picks up these qualities and improves the surrounding area with a new spatial and aesthetic design. It contains primarily residential use with commercial areas at ground level and first floors. The masterplan refers to the typology of the neighbouring buildings, adopting similar heights, courtyards and the rugged block structure. The design is characterized by an interaction with the buildings west of Bautzener Strasse, their building volumes and public place situations on both sides of the road.This results in varied but orderly arranged urban spaces. The building masses are designed to enable a variety of views through the development into the open space. Thus the extend of public space can be experienced and a smooth transition from the densely populated urban areas to the undeveloped spaces. The attractiveness of the new quarter is increased by the adjacent park, and its integration into the designed area.Awards:DGNB Platinum pre-certificate"KlimaschutzPartner-Preis 2016" (Climate Protection Partner's Prize).

The property at Michaelkirchstrasse 22-23 does not have a straightforward location on the Spree but rather a highly promising one, next to the Michaelkirchstrasse bridge and opposite a power station. It is a unique location, typical of Berlin in its wealth of urban tensions. The property symbolises the Berlin mood of change.In an urban space and volume study we played through various development variations for the buildings on the property. At the forefront was the possible use of the waterfront location for its attractive amenity value.Together with MetaDesign AG we joined in a product development workshop which resulted in a comprehensive strategy for a mixed-use real estate concept for the creative Berlin public. This was based on an analysis of the target group and led to an architectural concept that was linked to powerful branding. In this context the team also developed an initial communication concept.We later extended our design to the two neighbouring properties on the Spree. The urban form is reinforced by strong, dynamic spaces. A sequence of harbor - urban space - "river meadow" creates different qualities of space and usage, all of which benefit from their reference to the river.

42.000 - 52.000 square meters gross floor area of housing are to be built on the approximately 3.6-acre site of former water park "Blub" in Berlin-Neukölln district. Typologically this area is divided into three roughly equal parts: 1. Rental housing of appropriate standard for the city location. 2. Freehold apartments, benefiting of the micro-location on the Teltow Canal, the public green area and a view to the north. 3. Freehold, as well as rental property. Three apartment sizes are planned with about 60, 80 and 100 square meters.Our vision for the design is an "URBAN VILLAGE", a place with a strong sense of identity and belonging. A central village street, called “Rungiuspromenade”, defines the "URBAN VILLAGE". This complex and well-designed urban space is used for living, playing, promenading, communicating and, to an extent, driving. Situated north of the Rungiuspromenade three avenues, called "Villenpromenade" lead to ten privileged, free-standing multi-family residential buildings. Small neighborhood squares, each with individual character, are created around these buildings entrances. Green zones, developing from the green corridor along the Teltow-Canal, interlink, with the avenues.Our master plan is based on a sustainable development concept. Good sunlit apartments are located in compact, energy-efficient building types. A sensitive circulation concept reduces traffic impact on the development. The proportion of sealed area is minimised. Sustainable approaches to energy supply, recycling and the presence of green Biotopes complete the project.

Future Centre is a concept for a multi-use building and a real-estate project by the river in Berlin, Germany. Its purpose is to make various offers to the general public and professionals, who’s work is related to future issues. The concept has a strong positioning in the present global discussion on future and is to be supported by international sponsors.The future centre is has a forward looking and symbolic “Green Architecture”. The building itself shows state of the art architecture and building technology with a self-sustaining and excess-energy-generating system. It is designed as the most sustainable building as we can think of today, incorporating experimental techniques and design features.The history of future is being presented in a public Science Fiction Museum, giving an exciting insight into the way we see and have seen the future.A centre for futurology, environmental, technical and social research is at the heart of the project communicating to the public including workshops, visits for students etc. Workshops, flexible offices and laboratories for modern, flexible modes of working are provided. It is being made an experimental field for alternative transportation systems like (electro-) mobility (fuelled by excess energy from the building), or the use of the river for transportation etc.The future centre is at its heart a commercial development. It’s clearly defined, exiting and strong identity and image attracts people who want to be associated with the issues communicated. Especially the creative nomads of the future and the creative elite, which is a leading force in the development of the city of Berlin, will be attracted by this image. This helps to market the ancillary uses: commercial, office, short- and long-term-stay hotels, apartments and sensational penthouses etc.

Circulation and Traffic AccessSegro Office Park is not directly accessed from the federal road B96a "Am Seegraben" but via "Ludwig-Prandtl-Strasse", an internal access road within the greater development zone.The entrance to Segro Office Park is formed by a linear, slightly wedge shaped, central boulevard. In the centre of the site this boulevard widens to form a square, the heart of the development and a meeting point with urban quality. The boulevard gives direct access to several building sites and is the starting point for 2 perpendicular internal access roads, leading to all further sites positioned to the West. Interlocking Nature and Urban Spaces To the west of our site is a large area of open nature and some biotopes. We recognized this as an opportunity to create special qualities for the office park. The design of the masterplan shows extensively informally landscaped linear spaces running in east-west direction, which intertwine the urban part with nature. These green spaces integrate the east-west access roads and parking spaces. In contrast to the above, the central boulevard and square will be subject to a more formal, geometric landscaping. Juxtaposing this there will be an open landscaped area to the west of the Segro site as a place for people to rest and connect to nature. Building Design Options The chosen masterplan structure allows for a multitude of building sizes and shapes, each constructed on its own site. This report shows 3 generic options with 2 suboptions to explain the generic qualities and give an impression of some possible building sizes and geometries. Elements of all shown options can be combined.

Precious Park is an icon for luxurious living in a well designed and natural setting. Core features to achieve this are the optimization of view to landscape, orientation towards sun to maximize daylight exposure of residential units and spacious living within nature – yet at the same time within a high density settlement.The masterplan’s design is based on an elaborated rhythm where built spaces consequently face unbuilt spaces. This concept promotes a great generosity of space. Alternating sequences of water-bound pathways, green areas and paved areas create promenades and piazzas which invite people to spend time in its generosity of built & unbuilt spaces with a park-like atmosphere. Thereby created spaces are of dynamic character and open up to the adjacent forest. Being a large development, the precious park project implements aspects of green measures to create a sustainable, biotope society. It creates high density and thus reduces building site within its natural setting. The integrated landscaping optimizes functional zones and connects the project to its immediate surrounding forest.The residential development is blocked off from the adjacent high traffic street by a strip of commercial buildings that articulate the entrance to the area and provide protection from noise. Precious Park is a low traffic development where traffic is only permitted in the commercial areas at the entrance. Apartments are accessed via the underground parking lot which grants that the residential areas are free of any traffic.There are different pools inserted to the site using collected rainwater as the source. The rainwater is stored in underground tanks and later pumped to these surface pools. The pools are recreational and are visual background to the public piazzas. The water is sprayed into the air through these points and functions as natural (adiabatic) cooling for these external spaces in summer. The underground tanks also supply non-drinking water for the development.Precious Park takes advantages of its large site area and applies geothermal system for heating and cooling energy supply. Energy effective movable sunscreens on the elevation provide solar energy input in the wintertime, and shut out heat gains in the summertime. The contemporary façade design in gold, silver and bronze anodized aluminum creates a lively image. Glazed and opaque façade panels relate to external spaces on balconies, which themselves have partly opaque and partly glazed balustrades. The colour schemes and materiality relate to established associations of preciousness.At the end of the development a spacious centre for sport and recreation offers facilities for relaxation, activities and communication. Due to the use of natural materials within that area a link to the directly adjacent forest is built.
