East Side, Windisch , 2010

On the site east of the old spinning mill in Windisch, the design of Atelier WW proposes four linear building plots for new residential buildings. We dare a free interpretation within the specifications of the master plan and form a separate inner centre, a courtyard for the quarter with private gardens, which spatially incorporates the spinning mill building. The building lines are divided into seven clearly defined individual volumes to avoid long alleys. Their strictly serial structure promises an economic implementation. Special attention is directed at the attic floor: four 4 ½-room maisonettes are interlocked in such a way that each apartment is oriented to three sides. Generous terraces connect the apartments with the expanse of the former industrial area and the adjacent river landscape.
