‘Huis van Stad en Regio’ in Dordrecht
As one out of four studios we recently participated in a design competition for the new city hall and library in Dordrecht, NL.
The submission of the design concepts was followed by an exhibition at the beginning of February, where citizens were able to comment and vote for their favourite design. These
recommendations will be forwarded to the independent jury to be included in their decision... fingers crossed, please 🤞

Laying of the foundation stone for residential project "Südtribüne" in Dortmund 🧱
In the presence of Dortmund's Lord Mayor Ullrich Sierau, the Chairman of the CG Group, Christoph Gröner,
and our Managing Director, Gerhard Wittfeld, the foundation stone for the "Südtribüne" project was laid today in Dortmund. The former bunker, which is over 70 years old, will be extended with a residential building with 65 residential units and a small commercial unit.
Construction work on the site is progressing rapidly. Apartments of various sizes are being built on a living area of around 4,350 m². Generous windows, a green courtyard and the adjacent small park with play areas will give the future residents the feeling of living in a green area and yet in the middle of the city. The use of
a combined heat and power plant is proof that sustainable and future-oriented energy supply that protects the environment and reduces costs for the residents can be realised even in complex redevelopment
projects. The project is scheduled for completion in mid 2021.

Green oasis in the HafenCity

Together with Landmarken AG, kadawittfeldarchitektur is developing Germany’s first high-rise residential building in HafenCity based on the ideas of the Cradle 2 Cradle principle.

„Moringa wird als grüne Oase einen aktiven Beitrag zur Verbesserung des Klimas und der Luftreinheit in der HafenCity leisten und die Lebensqualität seiner Bewohner und des umgebenden Quartiers steigern. Das erste C2C-inspirierte Wohnhochhaus Deutschlands schafft mit einem hybriden Nutzungsmix Mehrwerte, die dem ganzen Quartier zugutekommen.“

Let's TWIST! We are so excited about our latest competition success...
Last year, we came in second with our proposal for an urban development concept at Schwannstrasse 3 in Düsseldorf, #gatewayduesseldorf, the first prize was awarded to Kohn Pedersen Fox from New York. Now another high-rise building is to be realised at this well-established office location, which will emphasise and enhance the city entrance at #kennedydamm in line with the "Gateway"-project. And this time we were able to succeed and win the 1st prize... YIPYIP!! For both projects, a land-use plan procedure will be carried out after the competition in order to give the new urban development the appropriate legal basis. The floors of the tower mediate between the base and the top and therefore perform a twist as they move upwards, creating a slender waistline that optimises the sunlight and ventilation of the residential buildings from the southeast. The tall, slender building matches the special location directly on Kennedy Bridge with its long-distance effect.

Eigenschaftliche Verschmelzung

Das kunstreiche Verschmelzen umfangreicher, entwurfsbestimmender, dabei aber möglicherweise widersprüchlicher Wünsche ist die Basis guter Architektur.
Weil im Planungsverlauf das Verrückte und dass Poetische, das Abwegige und das Archaische manchmal zu kurz kommen, haben wir aus den bestehenden Adjektiven kurzerhand neue Begriffe für Sie gebaut.

Wir wünschen für 2020 unseren Bauherrinnen und Bauherren, Mitarbeiterinnen und Mitarbeitern sowie Partnerinnen und Partnern alles Gute.

On 06.12.2019 we celebrated the present and 20 years of kadawittfeldarchitektur on a turbulent journey through time. One step back, three steps forward, back into the future and on into the past, somewhere between mixtapes of the eighties and visionaries of the future we danced together through a never-ending time tunnel!

#bautagebuch: THE SHELF, Berlin

In the historically grown industrial estate in Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg, a new mixed-use building ensemble is being built. The opening to the street and the special development through the green inner courtyard create a lively place that offers space for companies, artists and start-ups in the Kreuzberg district.
