Studio houses Meisenrain, Gockhausen, 2011–2014
Meisenrain neighbourhood is located north of the municipality of Gockhausen and is characterised by residential buildings from the 1950s and 1960s, some of very high quality.
In this interesting environment, the existing studio buildings on the Meisenrain site were to be converted or replaced by new buildings. The continuation of the studio concept with the use for living and working was the main focus of the development.
The concept envisages that the individual units are each accessed through private, enclosed gardens, either directly from the surrounding outdoor space or – as on the upper floors – via an external access ramp. The private front gardens are developed not only as access courtyards, but also as flowing transitions between the exterior and interior spaces.
The residential studios can be modularly combined into larger units according to requirements and needs.
