Especially in the dense inner-city structure, there are numerous building situations that are hardly considered for conversion due to their location and ownership. Before buildings are demolished and replaced, however, the potential of the existing buildings should be examined more closely. In the OPEN SPACE project, areas are made visible that are barely noticed in everyday life.



The occupation of wall surfaces is adapted from graffiti writing and developed further. Geometrically abstract images create a connection with the architecture. In the OPEN SPACE project, the built environment is supplemented by photomontages. The colored shapes indicate the unused spaces in the urban fabric and encourage creative use of areas that at first glance are not perceived as potential space. Only through the development of creative ideas can new inner-city space be gained in a densely populated city. The project demands courageous handling of all involved in order to provide areas such as: roofs / narrow building gaps / remaining land / water areas / bunkers / inner courtyards / hillside locations etc. with a sensible structural use.

There is more room potential than you think, it has to be discovered and made usable!



The development of unused area creates a higher density, which leads to people feeling confined in their usual living space. These rooms can only be used in a meaningful and satisfactory manner for everyone if they work together in an understanding manner. Creative and, above all, considerate handling are the factors that determine the success and failure of a project when it comes to densification.

When using new inner-city areas, attention must also be paid to the target group. A rise in rents and thus the displacement of residents cannot be accepted. The central topic should be how rooms can be created through redensification that enrich their surroundings for all residents.
