At a glance
The outdoor spaces of the housing estate Glanzenberg 12 and
26-28 were re-designed according to the outcomes of qualitative
interviews with inhabitants and other stakeholders and taking
aethetic, ecological and economic aspects into consideration. The
goal was to enhance the possibilities for appropiation of the green
spaces for the inhabitants, to make them more pleasing to them and
at the same time to strengthen biodiversity while keeping the
economic side at bay.
Three years after implementation the re-design was analysed and evaluated to find out what works well and what less and why. The results offer backround information for planning and maintanance of future design of outdoor spaces of housing estates.
