City villas in Gartenstadt, Bingen on the Rhine



Within the context of an idea competition and a subsequent planning framework, the harbor in Bingen received a full redevelopment comprising tourist attractions, free spaces and residential use.
In 2001 the "Gartenstadt Bingen am Rhein" realized a total of 23 individual villas with high-quality residential units in the flood-free zone.
The first four individual villas with 26 residential units and a floor space of approx. 5,500 sqm were built for the 2008 state garden exhibition. Large coherently designed open areas were constructed during the course of the exhibition, which emphasize the "uniqueness" of the building arrangement as a public green and park area and thus underline the high-quality character of "living by the water". The apartments were developed individually to be sold as property, and single-story and maisonette flats were developed adjacent to generous penthouse storys.
