Contest opens for Lübeck old town regeneration

  • Comment

The Hanseatic City of Lübeck has launched an open design contest for the redevelopment of its UNESCO World Heritage-protected founding quarter

Architects are invited to propose ‘sensitive’ and ‘modern’ designs for three typical townhouse facades which will be used during the reconstruction of the former capital of the Hanseatic League.

Located in the Schleswig-Holstein state of northern Germany, the historic city was heavily bombed by the Allies during the Second World War.

The latest redevelopment project will create 170 new homes and shops on 39 plots in the city’s former old town.

Planned to complete in 2020, the scheme will see up to 22,000m² of new development between St. Mary’s Church and the city’s Travelodge.

Submissions will be judged on the response to the historical context, use of materials, cost, feasibility and overall appearance.

A total prize fund worth £36,000 will be shared between the best schemes.

The competition is open to all registered architects and the official language is German.

The deadline for requests to participate is 14 January 2015.
