Noise protection systems are usually built as engineering structures using prefabricated components. One associates this with motorways and high-speed roads.
In order to ensure noise reduction, but also to give Neue Daumstraße in Spandau the character of an inner-city street, a construction method with an individual character was developed through the use of materials and shapes.

AppreciationGerman Landscape Architecture Award 2003

Jury verdict: Against the background of an often undifferentiated execution of technical structures - here: Noise protection along traffic routes - the work impresses with its use of materials and ground modelling tailored to the situation, as well as the selective use of vertical vegetation elements. A conscious decision was made to turn away from materials and prefabricated elements available on the market. The design is thus convincing through its minimalist approach and the deliberate use of landscape architectural design tools.

The spatial shaping of the noise protection system is based on the linear structure of the street, but breaks it up and leads to a pleasant pointing in the form of a bastion.
