Considering city and landscape holistically and on a large scale is the foundation for sustainably developing all living environments.
The contrasts between city and landscape are becoming more and more blurred. Locations that are difficult to define, that cannot be assigned to one category or the other, are coming into being. For such hybrid spaces, it is necessary to find new interpretations that are accepted by residents as attractive living environments. We comprehend considering spaces on a large scale, and thus as a “landscape,” as an opportunity for qualitative further development toward an ecological city-landscape, which provides a sustainable basis for life for future generations.

Projects: City and Landscape

The former commercial area to the west of the Munich - Ingolstadt railway line, close to the Allach and Untermenzing S-Bahn stations, is being restructured into a mixed-use residential quarter.
Cold air corridors and easily accessible, high-quality green spaces contribute significantly to a pleasant settlement climate. For the Werdenberg-Liechtenstein agglomeration, we are developing principles, fields of action and measures for heat-adapted settlement development.
Together with e2a Architekten, we developed ideas and visions for the southern entrance to Hamburg for the urban development test planning procedure. At the centre is a bridge park spanning the Elbe with diverse connections to the surrounding neighbourhoods.
The planning for Andermatt Mitte aims to exploit the village's potential and create a diverse, easily accessible center. The development takes into account the existing central features in Andermatt, including the historic village center, the central train station adjacent to the Chedi and the new Andermatt Reuss resort.
An integral design for the urban space between the main station and Central was developed under the motto "large-scale clean-up". The Masterplan 2050 envisages enormous space gains for pedestrians, beautiful historic buildings, an attractive bicycle network and more well-being. Car traffic will be reduced.
Pratteln is undergoing an intensive transformation. A new open space framework is being developed to meet climatic requirements, access and traffic functions. Additional public open spaces are being created in dense areas and underserved areas. Measures such as cold air corridors, unsealing and greening will reduce heat islands and strengthen the connection to the landscape.
High-quality open spaces are being created around the impressive listed building, which, in addition to their high degree of required and variable functionality, in particular realise a design language that connects the entire quarter with park-like outdoor facilities in keeping with the listed building.
The low-traffic open spaces of the entire Einstein Quarter near Potsdam's main railway station will bring together the most diverse user groups from the buildings and also visitors to the adjacent riverside promenade through a uniform design concept.
Preparatory study with analysis, framework planning, integrated action and development concept, citizen participation as part of the Socially Integrative City funding programme.
The urban space concept proposes goals, design approaches and possible uses for upgrading public urban spaces in Lucerne and visualises this potential using selected open spaces as examples.
With the green and open space concept that we developed, the city of Rapperswil-Jona can improve and develop its range of open spaces and interconnect them more optimally for an increasing number of residents.
As a future, urban (development) hinge between Biel and Nidau, a new piece of the city is growing on the shore/shoreline/bank of Lake Biel. Embedded between the harbor of Biel and the Zihl channel in the north as well as the Nidau-Büren channel in the south, the new lake district responds to various spatial urban and landscape needs.
Spatial planning development concept for 8 communities (City of Germering, City of Munich, City of Starnberg, Municipality Gauting, Municipality Gräfelfing,  Municipality Krailling, Municipality Neuried, Municipality Planegg)
The master plan combines an assessment and reorganization of the existing qualities of the park with a new museum building. The open space develops from a former garden show to a complex theme park in connection with the exhibition grounds, the River Warnow, and the museum.
Concept and urban land use planning for high-rise buildings with office and hotel use at the eastern city entrance of Munich.
The boulevard planted with species of maples with tall trunks forms the backbone of the new district of the city of Opfikon. The access roads and green corridors with “courses of streams” for absorbing water from the roofs of the adjacent buildings are situated perpendicular to it.
The parks along the Quai at the lower lake basin are an important site in Zurich and were already inaugurated at the location where the part of the lake was backfilled in 1887. We finely tailored a substantial part of the impressive chain of pearls consisting of various public squares and park areas to their intensive utilizations.
The Volkspark Altona is once again supposed to play a bigger role in the awareness of the population of Hamburg and is thus being upgraded with targeted measures. Our master plan enhances the accessibility of the park and improves how it is integrated in urban space with attractive entrances.
Open spaces play a crucial roll in adapting settlement areas to the climate. For the Obersee agglomeration area, which consists of seventeen municipalities in three cantons, we are developing the basis and recommendations for action for promoting a temperate climate in settlement areas.
Within the framework of the IBA Basel 2020 and Label project “3Land—Drei Städte, eine Zukunft” (Three Cities—One Future), we developed a cross-national nature conservation and open space concept for the urban and industrial landscape spaces of the border triangle.
