Am langen Rain - Müllheim
2015 - First Prize - Team: F. Schmelzer, KH Studio delli Ponti & Novielli. Consultant: L. Martinelli
Placed on the edge of the Black Forest, the new district of Müllheim seeks to capitalize the most relevant elements of the landscape, namely the existing field structure and vegetation, in order to develop a vibrant medium-density residential district, in between city and countryside. Mixed typologies and different gradients of open spaces provide a rich and complex environment for the inhabitants. Rational use of energy and resources and noise control strategies are integrated in the general design of buildings and open spaces. In order to enhance efficiency, the district is divided in clusters with centralized HVAC system, common waste management and common water collection, recycling and reuse.
