Multi-generation house with a green oasis on the roof
In Friedberg near Augsburg Benz & Ziegler is establishing a five-story residential building for Kinderheim Friedberg e.V. (Children's home Friedberg). It consists of rental apartments as well as special dwellings for elderly persons and it will provide a community roof garden. The social project is accompanied by Benz & Ziegler from the first study of development potential until completion; construction will start in 2020.
Rooftop garden and pergolas provide for living qualities and social interaction
Above the ground level the building subdivides in two structures: Towards the street, a five-storey cube dominates, which is loosened up by windows and floor-to-ceiling glazed loggias. The double-shell façade provides adequate sound insulation. The four-storied block in the rear stands out due to its big roof garden open for the community. The access to the apartments is provided by pergolas. Plants ensure a pleasant stay towards the quiet inner courtyard and vivify the façade. Office and commercial use are planned on the ground floor.
The property is next to a protestant church. Its existing underground garage will be connected to the new building for shared use.
