A look between the buildings

The neighborhood consists of buildings and sensitively designed open spaces with high qualities. Spaces have been created that people appreciate: narrow alleys, wide squares, areas lined with green planting, trees, playgrounds, street cafés. There are no undefined, semi-public or private spaces. No backside. The high density generates positive urban qualities. This is a special feature of Schwabinger Tor.

The vision for the Schwabinger Tor was to build a piece of the city. Goal achieved!
Urbanity needs a mix of functions, narrow and wide spaces, and different viewing levels and vistas.
People's perception is important. High first floor zone creates a sense of freedom and space.

Green oases for little visitors

The poem "The Seed" provided the idea for the design of a new playground with a large bird's nest in the middle for climbing and exploring.
Playgrounds should be places where little people can continue to develop.
It will take a while for all the new trees planted around this playground to reach their true size. Over time, the neighborhood will mature, age, and really grow into the city.
