Schoren area

City development area, with two new residential towers!
1. Price of this competition goes to Burckhardt and Partner, Basel:

Wellville, Schorenareal
Basel, Switzerland


Concept

In line with their differing characters, the two plots of land are planned differently in terms of their urban development context and external typology, and their urban development structure developed dialectically. The planning also covers the urban development fragments and uses them to create a clear and homogenous building structure in both areas. As a result, urban and rural improvements are achieved not only for the building area but also for the entire quarter. The aim is to define rules within the development which also leave the necessary room for manoeuvre in terms of the further planning as well as permitting a typological and sociological mixture.

Inner design lines with a reference to external edges define a clear network for the building structure. The interfaces with the urban development fragments and the existing network of paths determine starting points and links. Even amongst one another, they create new relations on the plots of land and have different weightings. The network of design lines and connections defines the building fields as well as the open spaces.

In part C, the high-rise settlement is extended by two additional high-rise buildings which fit in harmoniously and with consideration for the shadow problem.


Rules

The building fields determined are developed with a block edge structure, the outer edges are laid down by the fields. A clear distinction is made between inner courtyards and outside public areas, the subject of the inner courtyards incorporates the existing building into the concept. The openings of the blocks are set in a binding manner and define a secondary network of paths. The access points for connection of the building are situated on the road side and go as far as the inner courtyard. Higher residential buildings are placed at the important town areas and serve to mark the link points.

The green concept reinforces the differentiation between interior and exterior via the varied density of the external areas. The courtyards have open and irregular green areas, and are in the context of the inner courtyards which are also built up for the existing development. The street areas are densely and compactly planted. They interlink with the open areas which are greened extensively at specific points only. In part C, freely placed groups of trees combine with the green surroundings.


Sociology

Characteristic for the planning area is the different nature of the individual partial areas. The strongly integrative style of the development will be reflected in the sociological structure: As a reaction to the challenge of ageing and the mixture of different social layers, the building typologies offer room for a broad spectrum of apartment types and sizes as well as the possibility of differing ownership relations. The most varying types of apartment can also be realised within one building structure.

The aim is the creation of attractive apartments for families as well as small apartments suitable for older people.
Contemporary interpretation of the high-rise building theme is proposed for part C. The subject of diversity is taken up in the high-rise buildings via the layers. They allow room for differing ground plan layouts: In the base area near the green landscape area, there are attractive apartments for families; the projecting upper storeys feature generous apartments in the superior segment.

A central atrium unites the building sections and reinforces visibility by allowing natural light to flow from the roof through all office floors and down to the underground levels where the auditorium lobby is located. The concept of openness and transparency is reinforced by the use of glass in the building’s exterior design.
