Winning Design for Residential Estate in Munich


A new residential neighborhood of 340 apartments is currently being developed on a 30,000 square-meter site on Munich’s Ludlstrasse. The design proposal submitted by AllesWirdGut in collaboration with el:ch Landscape Design came out winning in the architectural competition. Construction of the 90-million project is scheduled to begin in 2017.


Munich’slargest residential developer, GEWOFAG, held an architectural competition for the project whichwas won by AllesWirdGut last week. Aside from 340 apartment units, the Ludlstrasse development will include a local neighborhood center with artist studios, assisted living facilities, a multigenerational house, a family and advice center, and a children’s house.


One particular design challenge was to screen the development from an urban highway running along the south edge of the site. This was solved by AllesWirdGut with a constructional noise barrier that may be interpreted as a curtain shielding the estate from emissions. Detached polygonal apartment blocks that are scattered across the site open toward a park landscape. Public outdoor spaces for community use are interspersed with the secluded private gardens of individual ground-floor apartments. A clearly structured outdoor space concept helps finding one’s way between the built volumes.


Generally, the focus was on giving the new Ludlstrasse housing its own unique character, which facilitates identification with the place for future residents and brings an upgrade for the entire neighborhood.


The jury statement says that the “required apartment-type mix was conclusively implemen¬ted. The detached block buildings are accessed through a highly efficient, central circulation well, which has its own geometry and makes for a nice entrance on every floor. (…) The noise barrier buildings on the south side consist of block with two and five apartments per floor. (…) The polygonal geometry of the building skin is continued inside in the proposed floor plans. (…) The polygonal built volumes required in the urban-design brief were conclusively implemented and could make the new Ludlstrasse housing a distinctive, unmistakable address. (…).“
