Student Housing at Saalepark

Hof, 2004

A carpet of two- and three-story pavilions, which creates an almost village-like character, is embedded in the nature area of the "Saaleauen". A footpath leads through the residential complex, past the community center, to the Saale bridge. A staircase gives access to two neighboring houses and leads to the roof terrace. Small structural units allow the residents a maximum of privacy. The 230 rooms can be furnished very well due to the axial dimension of 3.80 meters. Storey-high façade elements integrate desk and balcony and create a generous room situation on a small area. Ring kiln bricks and Siberian larch characterize the appearance of the student housing.
