In the NEUE HAMBURGER TERRASSEN project LAN Architecture makes reference to the typology of the social and workers residences (Terraces Houses) to restore a contemporary version. The studio develops a plan integrating different typologies from individual houses to collective residences. The project consists in a five story corner building on the North creating a connection with the existing fabrics and in a series of housing block in the form of “U”, opening to the external green spaces and with an enclosed common green space. Each block contains multi-story single-family houses both oriented on common spaces and on the street. We limited car circulation with accesses to common parking along blocks sides to entirely devote the street to pedestrians. The street becomes a further space to “live”. Particular attention was paid to neighbourhood relations and to create collective “sociability” spaces. Buildings façades are very homogeneous, classical and regular creating a unitary image for the whole district.

  1. I like these designs. It places an emphasis on the living and breathing architecture paradigm of design. I wish the developers of my community will take heed of these concepts.
