Don’t be put off by the cuteness! Arkadien Winnenden is a hardcore industrial regeneration project. A diversity of high performance components make this the world’s most sustainable neighbourhood and provides a fresh new vision for people-friendly and resource productive suburbs.
Mixed architectural typologies are kept a cohesive neighbourhood thanks to the appealing Mediterranean colour concept and “garden city” quality of the streetscapes. Water sensitive urban design provides a distinctive urban character. Street corners are mini-plazas and places to chat with your neighbour or for kids to kick a ball. Although the streetscapes are distinctively pedestrian, a shared circulation concept means that the site is fully accessible for vehicles, with parking options in an underground garage, carports, and parking spots neatly tucked away between gardens on the unique load-bearing planting substrate. The high density of the site is softened through green streetscapes. The stunning lake at the heart of the development manages flood waters from both the site itself and the adjacent river. The river park integrates play areas, cycle routes and flood meadows.
