Mixed-Use – Europan 8

competition: finalists
location: Lauterach, Austria
year: 2006


To regain the lost 'core' is the bold vision for Lauterach, a small market town in the growing Rhine Valley Region along the border of Austria and Switzerland. The programme for the site comprises of a nursery school, home for the elderly including chapel, public canteen and staff accommodation, offices, residential units and shops. A sequence of open spaces complements the loose network of pedestrian and cycle links and creates an alternative route to the busy road nearby.
