A new ensemble, consisting of several volumes, Rheinufer 02 forms the southern end of a new city district in Ludwigshafen located on the former port area between the Rhine and Luitpoldhafen and the inner city. The six-storey, L-shaped main building follows the line of the street (Rheinallee), emphasising the perimeter of the block. In line with the development plan which envisages more open, looser development towards the east, two separate “urban villas” are created at the back of this block. In terms of architectural style the apartment block has a classically articulated façade with clinker-clad base and an upper storey set back from the façade plane. Cornices, generously sized balconies and pale-coloured parapet banding all emphasise the horizontal. Projecting sections add rhythm along the long street side. These also mark the entrances to the individual sections of the block and lend a quality feel to the housing development. In total 91 barrier-free apartments, each with high-quality fittings and individual ground plans, are being created here.
