Envisioning an urban district with distinct typologies on the foundation of a strong ecological framework.
West 8’s awarded urban design for Freiham Nord is composed of a number of neighbourhoods with different atmospheres, seamlessly integrated into the urban and natural context. With a wide range of housing typologies, the district will accommodate the needs and lifestyles of households of different ages and sizes.
The area features a robust structure of urban green spaces, ranging from alleys to boulevards, parks, and squares. The design identifies two district urban centers, a neighbourhood square, a village common, a central green axis, a green belt, and generous open spaces within the Sports Park and Educational Campus. West 8 also created landscape designs for specific residential functions such as community gardens, daycare playgrounds, and neighbourhood meeting points.
The new district is well-connected to Munich’s public transport network and adjacent suburbs of Aubing and Neuaubing through two suburban train stations, several buses, and a tram to the city center. This will provide fast and comfortable connections between living, working, and recreation, leading to a high standard of living.
The district’s name is derived from the historic Freiham Estate, which dates back to the 12th century and still holds significant cultural value in modern-day Bavaria. The estate’s heritage has been incorporated into the revitalized ecological framework of Freiham North.
