The innovative new neighbourhood in the heart of Karlsruhe
This modern urban quarter in the heart of the Baden metropolis is synonymous with modern living in a prime location. The quarter will include attractive apartments in a range of sizes. The goal: intergenerational living in KWARTIER, where comfort and functionality are key features. KWARTIER HOMES is designed by the KRESINGS architectural office and is seamlessly integrated into an architecturally heterogeneous environment consisting of a new development area, the old town and buildings from the 1970s and 80s.
KWARTIER – the perfect place to live
KWARTIER HOMES is an ideal place to live with a series of distinct spaces dedicated to public, semi-public and private use. The inner courtyard is a sheltered retreat with a combination of private and shared spaces. The architects have taken inspiration from the mix of epochs and materials with large-scale proportions – in keeping with Karlsruhe’s Südstadt. The facade modulates both horizontally and vertically and is designed in a variety of colours. The building’s elegant form harmonises with the surroundings to create a coherent overall presence.
Karlsruhe – attractive metropolis
With over 300,000 inhabitants, Karlsruhe is one of the largest cities in southern Germany. The “City of Law” is the seat of the Federal Court of Justice and the Federal Constitutional Court. The city is home to numerous supra-regional authorities and research institutions, nine universities such as the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and the Centre for Art and Media (ZKM). At the same time, Karlsruhe is an important information and communication technology hub. In 2019, Karlsruhe was included in the Creative Cities network by UNESCO as a “City of Media Art”. Among the major infrastructure in the area are two Rhine ports and the second largest refinery in Germany.
