5 SEASONS
SPRING, SUMMER, AUTUMN, WINTER AND THE SCORE OF EVERYDAY LIFE

Why we do not only want to stay here, but also can when our living conditions change. 

This project is a strategy that addresses an urban script based on a minimum of structured elements and guidelines, thus allowing maximum freedom for development by means of the manuals.

Like a score, the structure is characterized by diversity, liveliness, adaptability, permeability, variability. The basis of the typology is the recycled family home. The individual residential units are on the one hand a part of the common, flexible structure and on the other hand open for individual adaptations.

Since pluralism, diversity as well as multi-colour and vibrancy have become the key characteristics of urban space, the variety of programmes as well as adaptability/flexibility of spaces have become increasingly important arguments in the choice of working and living space.

The neutral typology and the extensive area over which the housing units are spread allow flexibility for the interspace and for the organisation of the housing space. The distinction between the public and the private, the borders and the transitions, is elastic, and is determined by the needs of the inhabitants.
