Wohnen am Hübelweg, Niederlenz , 2013–2014, 1st prize

“The project seeks a balance between village and landscape. The project authors therefore make the coexistence of density and expanse the overriding theme. A rather urban quality is consciously developed, which relates to the density of the core zone. […] In its architecture, the project takes up familiar images of village buildings and tries to integrate the distinctive building volumes in the rural context. The cultivated landscape that is structured with walls and terraces forms a concreted base for the new buildings. Above it, the buildings with a traditional punctuated façade are plastered. The modest yet characteristic architecture has an appropriate and identity-building effect.” (Excerpt from the jury statement)
