In the German city of Hamburg, the municipality is planning to cover a 2 km long part of the highway that runs through the city. Juurlink [+] Geluk was invited to participate in the contest on this linear development.
The districts on both sides of the highway are reconnected through a park where the activities of the neighborhood are taking place. Existing qualities are embedded in the design and enhance the local identity.
The new residential program is a modern interpretation of the existing Hamburg villa and is facing the new park. The small allotments are seen as an enrichment of the park and are the breeding ground for common activities.
A clear green structure with a logic routing for both pedestrians and cyclists provides a strong coherency within this part of Hamburg.
