3. PRIZE

Situated between the castle and the Schussental hospital, the two quarters Parkstasse and Safranmoos frame the city park. The castle square and a new quarter’s square in Safranmoos constitute the opening and the end point of the park’s edge.

The access system of the quarters is also a sequence of public spacess. Existing paths and the stock of trees are to be preserved and integrated in the spatial structure proposed. Quarters’ and neighbourhoods’ squares as openings towards the city park are inserted in the access system.

The quarter Parkstraße is made up of four construction fields. Each field consists of detached buildings, which enclose a common courtyard by a connecting wall. The Safranmoos quarter is a mixture of single-family, double, row and multi-family houses. Their access is adapted to the topography by means of change of direction and divides the districts into subspaces.

Coming from the city center, the castle square is the main entrance to the city park. In order to strengthen its urban function, traffic is concentrated along the left edge of the square. Rows of trees and solitary trees structure the square spatially.
