The new residential quarter right in the middle of downtown Bielefeld recognizes the potential of history, conveying this potential into the present. The large-scale industrial architecture of the area of the former incorporation “Anker Werke AG“, a company specialized in the production of sewing ma- chines and cash registers, has been kept up, with this area having been transformed into a new urban quarter by means of some minor changes.Save this picture!© Roman Mensing
Additional incisions made at the corners of the perimeter block development break up the existing structures, thus creating an interior zone filled with light and loaded with new contents. At the same time, the staggered positioning of the entrances leaves the sense of comfort of the garden unaffected and sustains the original character of the industrial scale. This approach has resulted in the creation of a revegetated interior space which – by means of its design – serves both as a community garden and as an area allowing barrier-free surmounting of the rising terrain.Save this picture!© Roman Mensing
Apart from the use for commercial purposes in the southern part of the ground floor, the ensemble of buildings first and foremost provides space for 102 apartments that are full of personality. The struc- tural design of the previous factory buildings has been maintained throughout, and the heritage-pro- tected front of the main building, alongside with the bridge, has been restored in a careful manner.Save this picture!© Roman MensingSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Roman MensingThis has led to the creation of spacious living areas flooded with light, and thanks to their high ceil- ings and their picture windows, these areas have a loft-like character of extraordinary kind. The pro- jecting penthouse apartments, which are built onto the existing structure, constitute a quite particular highlight. With their bronze-colored metal cladding systems and the deliberate cantilevers positioned at the incisions, they clearly reflect and underline the conceptual idea of an inner-city ensemble that carries on the history of Bielefeld, making this history lively and perceptible.
