Residential House Doldenhof
Hess Immobilien AG, owner of the historic Villa Doldenhof near Kreuzlingen railway station, commissioned Susanne Fritz Architekten to design an apartment building with 14 rental flats in the villa's park. In terms of urban planning, the volumes of the villa and the apartment building are placed and proportioned in such a way that the generosity of the garden landscape with its tall trees and the solitary position of the historic building are preserved. Kreuzlingen, with its immediate proximity to the student city of Constance and its location on Lake Constance, has become a sought-after place to live. Based on a market analysis, a mix of 1.5 room to 3.5 room flats was designed, which would also be suitable for shared flats. The building has a recessed façade with generous balconies all around. The floor-to-ceiling windows offer maximum views of the surrounding parkland, while partial cladding of the balconies with vertical wooden elements nevertheless provides privacy and intimacy. The flats will be ready for occupancy from early summer 2023. The buildings fit very well into the park-like landscape and all flats have a generous connection to the outdoor space.
The connected underground car park is designed for contemporary mobility with a large proportion of parking space for bicycles and electric vehicles. Great importance is attached to sustainability: In addition to the geothermal probes and the heat pump, a photovoltaic system on the roof is part of the building services. The entire materialisation of the building and the building fabric are also geared towards durability and a return that can be achieved in the long term.
