Housing and Commercial Building "Westhof", Munich, Germany 2018 © Stefano Graziani @stefanoograziani Accommodating different housing units from one- to five-room apartments, the building complements the existing typology, a perimeter block surrounding three functional buildings, the recessed new building divides the extensive site (ca. 6000 sqm) into a private courtyard and an open frontcourt. Located in the Maxvorstadt district to the West of Munich’s city centre, Christ & Gantenbein’s new building is a key element in the repurposing of the former parcel distribution center built in 1926. #maxvorstadt #munich #reporpusing #listedbuildings #housing #commercialbuilding #blockrandbebauung #christgantenbein #residentialarchitecture #stefanograziani #historicalheritagepreservation #architecturehistory #postfuhramt #postfuhramtmunich #housingdevelopment #brick #recentlycompleted

The Strategic Plan developed by Christ & Gantenbein and EM2N @em2n_architekten_ag , with Maurus Schifferli Landschaftsarchitekt #maurusschifferlilandschaftsarchitekt , Cabane Partner #cabanepartner and EWP AG for the "Wolf Areal" in Basel involves the redevelopment of a 16-hectare brownfield site, close to the SBB Station in Basel. The backbone of the project is given by a 1km perimeter block development able to bring together a variety of uses (housing, retail, offices, leisure and light manufacturing), while creating a protected courtyard to overcome the main challenge of the site: noise pollution engendered by the surrounding railway and highway infrastructure. The building stock on the site has heterogeneous heritage value, the plan embraces the preservation and adaptive reuse of key architectural assets in order to maximise their identity-making potential and to used as urban catalysts during the long term development of the area. The elongated protected courtyard encircled by the built block will serve as a meeting point, offering the chance for a variety of appropriations and uses for a mixed public and inhabitants.
