Under the leitmotif of the “City with River” master plan, a 31-hectare former industrial and port area on the banks of the Rhine in Ludwigshafen was transformed into a new urban district. The plot for Rheinufer 01, a part of the project, is sited close to the city centres of both Ludwigshafen and Mannheim. In line with the development plan, a six-storey, L-shaped residential and office block was built on the corner of Rheinallee and Max-Pechstein-Strasse, closing the city-block structure at this point. On the Rhine side the block structure loosens to provide for two solitaire apartment buildings. The longer of the two follows the line of the street; the smaller one, in the style of an “urban villa”, stands within the inner courtyard, completing the ensemble. All the apartments in the perimeter block have loggias facing the street and continuous balconies overlooking the quieter, green courtyard side. In total 72 generously sized rental apartments have been created here.
