In the German city Flensburg, close to the Danish border, ADEPT is now publicly announced the 1st prize winner of a high-profile competition for a new city gate along Bahnhofstrasse – a central urban axis leading to the main station.

The proposal was designed as ‘a small piece of city’ adapting itself to the existing building structure by creating playful synergy between new and old. By combining different types of dwellings with different facade expressions, the project celebrates diversity and creates a human scale that meets the unique character of the local neighborhood with its historical brick buildings.
