Restructuring and Regeneration Concept
City centre | Wittenberg
The town of Wittenberg had a declining population which resulted in high levels of vacant buildings and redundant infrastructure. Housing estates were most affected but the town centre with a high concentration of listed buildings also suffered from lack of investment and low occupancy rates.
The restructuring concept sought to preserve the historic elements while allowing for new uses, upgrade of the housing stock and public realm and the introduction of tourist infrastructure. It proposed the re-introduction of historic features such as a small stream that was once buried and the removal of non-listed structures inside street blocks to create space for private gardens and new pedestrian links.
