The residential park with 382 dwellings, studios and a service center was built on the site of an obsolete Cologne tram depot amid an existing residential area in the south-west of Cologne. A pedestrian avenue, lined by a water course, forms the core and principle axis of the development and connects the commercial center of the district with a public park. The water course has both technical and design functions. On the one hand, it collects the rain water from the roofs and hard surfaces, (e.g. sidewalks) while on the other hand, it increases the privacy for the adjoining apartments at the ground floor by creating a physiological distance to the adjacent walkway. In spite of the building density, this residential park gives the impression of an elegant and luxurious environment. It is basically achieved by the detached building pattern and the spacious scenic center. Here at the center, the complete surface area is accessible only to pedestrians and cyclists. At the same time, all residential units have direct access to the underground parking garage.
