Kaltern / Caldaro - first prize
The housing extension “Gartenweg” is an agglomeration of several single buildings cleverly combined with the exploitation of the plots topography, thereby offering a much higher living density without being a massive structure. It is essential that each building be linked to the surrounding landscape. The correct use of the area is achieved by a series of structured terraces. The slope of the hillside runs through the bank on two points creating an intentional yet natural looking arrangement, with different relations between the architecture and landscape. The structure of the housing complex includes patterns of former agglomerations in Caldaro and combines them in a new way.
