architectural language of form, the new residential complex is laying like a clam around the already existing residence. By the different heights of design and as well as the interplay of solid and transparent building structures a symbiosis of dynamics and addition is created. The integration into the urban microstructure is to take place over the height of the eaves height receptive western neighboring buildings. The rising building cubatureis creating an integration of city scenes, which is dominated by the high rise and the northern Kastorkirche, there is a homogeneous networking between context and new construction. The view relation to the Kastorkirche even more to be highlighted, the building increases to north and builds by its form a "frame" around the church. By its sculptural imagery, the building is confident and creates a place of identification. A new space education on modeled on the water-related land management and the Residenzbad located in the 19th. The newly courtyard separated by a raise, the semi-public free range to create on the east side two roof gardens.
