Setting the framework for a new urban Frankfurt


This winning preliminary urban development framework, from our partner office in Frankfurt, sets all the parameters of the B Plan (the cities planning code) for this new urban development, GünthersburgHöfe.

Responding to the needs of affordable housing the Günthersburg Höfe urban plan references a more classical urban structure that provides a high density of homes, public services and leisure, and importantly maintaining existing green amenities and landscapes. It’s a significant contribution to the future fabric of Frankfurt, a bench mark for the cities inevitable expansion setting the parameters within which to do it.

The Frankfurt office formulated this winning design in collaboration with tobe.STADT städte.bau.planung.dialog Torsten Becker, Stefan Bernard Landschaftsarchitekten and Kölling Architekten BDA, for the City of Frankfurt.
