Winning entry for Baumkirchen Mitte, Munich (GER)
The design from UNStudio and OR else landscapes for the Baumkirchen Mitte development in Munich is selected as winning entry out of a shortlist of 6 finalists. OR else collaborated with UNStudio on the design for the roofscapes and public space at the new to build office and building complex of 18.500 m2, located in the east of Munich. Central point for the new neighbourhood of Baumkirchen Mitte will be the 60 meters high tower.
A sustainable work- and living environment
Relicts of former train tracks are reflected in the structure for the roofscape. Within this linear structure, flower gardens, vegetable patches and facilities are accommodated. We’ve found inspiration in the spontaneous growth vegetation, which is well known for abandoned train tracks.
Integrating rainwater collection, compost facilities, with vegetable patches and urban beekeeping, the roofgarden will not only be a residential area. I will fulfil an important ecological function within a sustainable environment.
The sustainability concept aims on gold DGNB certification.
