JUDENBURG WEST MASTERPLAN



LOCATION: JUDENBURG, AUSTRIA

DATE: 1999

PROGRAM: HOUSING, EDUCATION, RETAIL

SIZE: 40 ACRES



First prize in an international urban design competition for the extension of Judenburg, Austria, a town of approximately 10,000 inhabitants. As a new sustainable environment with water and energy management features, the masterplan offers incremental realization and varied design.

As an extension and culmination of the city structure of Judenburg, the New Green Plaza opens to the favorable components of the site: the forest and the river.

The living quarters are organized by quarters - neighborhoods. These terraced courts descend from the Western to the Eastern side of the site and have semi-public greens and private gardens as a front of the housing slabs. As a principle, the housingtypes are oriented to optimize sun and view by opening the central courts to teh South and the West. Each quartier has four story buildings to the North and three story types mixed-use types. Through the middle of the development is a series of allotment gardens which connect the site to its past and recall the farmland just outside the city.
