Call for Ideas – Competition for Cooperative Housing in Stuttgart-Rot

70437 Stuttgart Rot

Brief description: In Stuttgart-Rot, between 250 to 280 residential units are to be newly built on an area of around two hectares traditionally inhabited by cooperatives. The new neighborhood »Am Rotweg« is being developed jointly by the building cooperatives Neues Heim – Die Baugenossenschaft eG and Baugenossenschaft Zuffenhausen eG. We are looking for radically future-oriented typologies that meet the needs of people in different phases of their life and that promote a sense of community and allow for people to gather. The spaces inside and outside of the buildings should encourage diversity and an exchange of ideas.
