The planning area is located in an urban heterogeneous environment, in which settlements such as Zamilapark or the colonial settlement, as well as individual structures, such as the Süddeutsche Zeitung publishing house or the nh-Hotel, exist side by side rather than together. Each addition becomes the setting of a new fragment in the interurban inventory and can mediate between the different situations in the surroundings.

The new neighborhood to be built is thus faced with the challenge of developing a specific idiosyncrasy while at the same time establishing a relationship with the various forms found in the surrounding area. The submitted design addresses this challenge on different scale levels: On the urban scale level, four bodies "swim" in the landscape. In their setting, they take up lines of the surroundings and mediate in their size between the building volumes of the adjoining commercial areas to the south and east and the adjoining residential areas to the north. The idea of floating blocks continues the rhythm of the surroundings into the internal organization of the new neighborhood to be built. The open spaces in front of and between the blocks are open to the surroundings and can sometimes be understood as a square (in the northwest), as an Anger (between the buildings) or as a larger green space (in the south). The building heights are slightly staggered in an east-west direction. A high point is formed on the highway vis à vis the Süddeutsche Zeitung publishing house.

At the smaller scale, the blocks are conceived as individual and independently realizable houses that share a private green space in the courtyard. In contrast to the public open spaces in front of the blocks, these are sheltered and quiet, and their form is clear and uncluttered.
