The design for the conversion of the Prinz Leopold and Pionier-barracks in Regensburg, already internationally acclaimed, consists of a 33.5-hectare site, where new urban structures are being created connecting the surrounding neighborhoods and creating a sustainable living environment.

The design for Regensburg's last significant inner-city conversion site fits harmoniously into its context and creates a variety of added values for future residents. The heart of the project is a spacious park as the green centre of the new quarter, an urban link, and a central recreational space for the entire barracks district.

To the north, the park connects to Plato-Wild-Strasse, creating a natural link between the neighborhoods to the north, the new quarter and the higher-level open spaces, and Pürkelgut Castle to the south.

Mixed-use neighborhoods with different focal points are grouped around the central park: These form small neighborhood squares as anchor points and are connected by a ring boulevard. The existing urban structure of close-by neighborhoods in the north with their large residential courtyards is continued and the new urban neighborhood thus blends naturally into its surroundings in terms of morphology.

Large green residential courtyards form islands of tranquillity with high residential quality in an urban environment. Thanks to the special green centre, the new city quarter forms a strong identity of its own and also creates a new city façade at the city entrance in the south of Regensburg.
