What makes a place urban?
What is urbanity? A city is a place where many people live together in a limited space. It is characterized by opposites, the possibility of consciously being part of the city and being able to disappear into it. We identify with a place when we can explore, acquire and shape it.

Despite its central location, the Milbertshofen district still looks undefined and suburban. The design should be a starting point for the future development towards an urban character of the district.
The building complex consists of a central solitary building, which is framed by two other buildings. The placement of the volumes creates an urban meeting space that is composed of the existing space in front of the main building and the newly created space inside the building complex.
The design deals with the question of the extent to which density and extreme proximity are compatible with the needs of an individual society. This requires a subtle transition between public and private spaces, which is made possible by the placement of arcades. They form an intermediate space that is adapted to the respective building typology and form of living.
The various uses of the arcade are also visible in the external appearance of the building, thereby breaking up the formality of the facade structure.
