LUD – Residential quarter Ludlstraße Munich – 373 units

Munich Freedom

Polygonal residential blocks appear like sprinkled across the landscape, providing the accentuated background against a curtain-like foreground. Conceived as a variform and colorful urban-design mix, the site of the new Ludlstraße housing estate accommodates, aside from 373 residential units, a community center with artist studios, living communities and a multigenerational house, a family and counseling center, a children’s daycare center, and a children’s house. One special challenge was the noise barrier along the urban highway on the south side—like a long shielding curtain, it provides noise and emission protection for the housing estate. In the back, the terrain flattens out into a clearly structured open space informed by a landscaping concept that provides for easy orientation between the individual built volumes. Amid the loose array of situated polygonal residential blocks, a spacious park unfolds in which public open spaces for community use alternate with secluded private gardens belonging to individual ground-floor apartments.


The new housing estate by Ludlstraße is a charmingly interspersed protected development, an elegantly punctuated ensemble with a varied and colorful character.
