Open design competition for a new building for multi-generational centre with a childcare facility

73084 Salach

The multi-generational centre is the entrance to the IBA’27 Project »Quartier am Mühlkanal – Mühlkanal Neighbourhood«. It will create a link to the neighbourhood and integrate the old with the new, connecting the village to the new neighbourhood.

The subject of the open planning competition is the schematic design phase for the construction of multi-generational centre with an events space and meet-up space as well as a youth and creative space with a designated land-use area of approx. 1,300 square meters and a five-group childcare facility for 2 crèche groups (aged under 3) and 3 kindergarten groups (aged over 3) with a designated land-use area of approx. 1,300 square meters. There is also to be an expansion zone of 1,200 square meters as an ›area for social uses‹, 400 square meters of which can be added as a potential expansion zone for the childcare facility but can also be used independently. A further part area of 800 square meters can be allocated to the multi-generational centre and should include further social uses.

The accompanying open spaces and play areas as well as the access and parking spaces must also be planned.

The future new building will house the following:

  • the multi-generational centre with shared spaces, an open meeting place, a youth centre and family centre,
  • the childcare facility with 5 groups,
  • an expansion zone for the childcare facility that offers possibilities for interim use
  • an area for social uses, e.g. shared living with a nursing care component, shared living for people with special needs, a youth welfare service, apartments for apprentices, rooms for vocational training, cluster housing, multi-generational centre
