Promenade / river bank / nursing home in Innsbruck - Plan

The new nursing home at the Inn-promenade in Innsbruck brought the opportunity to redesign and revitalize a strip of 350m along the river. As the building was constructed very close to the waterside it was necessary to change the flood line in the neighboring areas: shifting the promenade and bicycle lane north-east a new topography was created for the slope functioning also as retention area. The view through the tree row on the slope edge along the Inn was extended and the sandbank of the river gently modified. This green strip serves now as a recreation area for the population of the former Olympic Village. A square with a Cafe under the nursing home is open for the public. A large playground for children was build close by as well as a court for beach volleyball. An initially controversial project (because of its proximity to the river) has evolved finally as a distinctive additional value for the landscape
