The urban perimeter block defines and gives shape to the European city. Consistent edges clarify the threshold between the public and the private domain. The perimeter structure gives definition to the street with facades that conform to some consistent rules and it contains an inner space or courtyard that provides air, sun and recreational space to the inhabitants. The simplicity and directness of this urban figure gives it great versatility in organization and economy of space. Territory is clearly demarcated – everyone understands it – both the passerby who might judge their journey through the city by the number of blocks they pace past or by the inhabitant who knows that once they cross the threshold of the gate or the porch-door know that they are home.

Our block is situated in the southwest of Milbertshofen along the busy Schleißheimer Str., high and densely built buildings act as a barrier against the noise. The street in the east is much quieter and that is where our block opens to the street and the public space in the neighbouring block containing a small restaurant, workshops and a wine shop. The idea of our urban intervention was to strengthen the connection to the neighbouring block, so we decided to expand the public space into our own block and preserve one of the existing buildings because of its strong connection to it.

Fascinated by the idea of a grown city, we designed a structure of divers building volumes, including townhouses, a student accommodation, cluster building and an apartment building.

Although each façade is different in its structure, what ties them together is the consistent use of materials: concrete and vertically combed and smooth plaster. Our goal was to create this impression of a grown structure with each building telling its own story and improving the neighbourhood while not downgrading the already existing structure.
