As a "neighbourhood square", the "Grüne Mitte" meets the different requirements of the surrounding buildings and the urban district due to its clear design and multifunctional usable areas. Three organically shaped, vegetatively determined and flatly arched elements lie as a green heart in the center of the strip-shaped, paved square area.
Strips of natural stone pavers in different widths alternate with water-bound surfaces. Areas that are subject to permanent heavy use due to path relationships or possible events are paved with natural stone, all other areas that are subject to weaker, temporary use are developed with a dark gray water-bound path surface. The free, organic form of the vegetation areas creates a self-confident contrast to the strict stripe pattern.
