VMX designs three residential blocks in the new Marktkwartier, as part of the Food Center area. By strategically distributing the program across the three sites, the design intends to give space and air to families living in the city.
The high density that is proposed for the area challenges the provision of a number of key qualities: privacy, outside space, good sun direction, and views. The two blocks along the water are located favourably, and will therefore contain the largest share of the program. The third block, situated at the heart of the development, can thereby give space to less dense ground bounded housing which also in the same time bring more air and space in the total setting.
