Freiraum Viertel Zwei

Water plays a central role in the Viertel Zwei “Freiraum”. The lake was incorporated into the first construction phase as a distinguishing feature of the new quarter. The light green leaves of the pond cypress trees, planted in the water by the western bank, provide an attractive contrast to the blue water – and make an excellent backdrop for a photo. The second construction phase, completed in June 2017, continues the water motif with a flat pond.
