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 shortlisted to join the competition dealing with this linear development.
Both sides along the highway are reconnected through a park that celebrates the activities in the neighbourhood. Existing qualities are embedded in the design and enhance the local identity.
New residential program is a modern interpretation of the existing Hamburg villa and is facing the new park. The small allotments are treated as an enrichment to the park and are the breeding ground for communal activities.
A clear green structure together with a logic routing for both pedestrians and cyclists ties this part of Hamburg together.
