Redevelopment of residential tower blocks Michelangelostraße Dresden-Zschertnitz Michelangelostraße 11

Client: Südost WOBA Dresden GmbH
Services provided: Overall planning and design

The redevelopment project Michelangelostrasse 11 will convert 208 apartments (mainly single-room) and two commercial units by layout alterations into 161 1- and 1.5-room apartments for the senior-citizen association "Alt werden in Gemeinschaft e.V." and 6 commercial units.

Merging and combining of single-room apartments creates attractive and flexible ground plans. The interior development structure was redesigned by demolishing one flat so that daylight is admitted.

The concept of devoting one storey to "Alt werden in Gemeinschaft" and making some of the apartment fit for handicapped people – plus the marvellous view across the city of Dresden – makes this residential tower block an attractive location.
