Neue Vahr

The project is the result of the win of ab ideas competition which was organized by the housing trust GeWoBa under the title Dwelling-on unusually. HvdH made a design which enhances the decision making process needed to improve an estate of run-up staircase flats in the Neue Vahr district of Bremen. Diverging adjustments of the surrounding grounds and the facades, as well as new extensions and a strategy to improve the fit-out of the dwellings dynamically match the diverging local needs of GeWoBa and existing occupants. In principle, all these alterations can be implemented independently.
