Zukunftspark Echzell

As part of the State Garden Show Oberhessen 2027, new and existing park areas will be redesigned in the four municipalities of Büdingen, Echzell, Gedern and Bad Salzhausen. The parks will make an essential and long-term contribution to the quality of life in the four municipalities. In the realisation competition, our design was awarded first prize for the parks in Echzell and Gedern, and third prize for the park in Büdingen.
An open space that can do (almost) everything in the future - urban link in the urban space, green landscape joint along the water. Both actively usable and contemplative. Intensively designed in one place and close to nature in another. The necessary redesign of the sports field and skate park will become the starting point of a powerful park that connects the two parts of the village and forms the transition to the landscape of the Bingenheimer Ried. The open expanse of the sports field and the southern sports meadow is framed by a loose framework of trees. Fruit groves in front of the park structure the park space and become communal and contemplative places in the light shade.
