BESCO+k1: The state of Hesse is investing around € 200 million in the modernization and expansion of the University of Kassel by 2020 with its special investment program Heureka. Part of the program is the creation of a new educational landscape on campus terrain, where research, teaching and learning are possible.
The areas of the outdoor spaces between Moritzstraße, Gottschalkstraße and Mombachstraße comprise a total of 16,700 m² and were planned by the office of k1 landscape architects from Berlin. The newly created connection between the departments of the university and the Ahnapark is divided into a carpet-like laid plateau of natural stone slabs and paving, sunbathing lawns, a large outside staircase, and individual retreat areas.
The new campus is being developed as an urban ensemble with clear edges, in particular to the new Ahna Park. The result is a spatial continuum that opens up all buildings and forms special places of communication with individual surfaces worked out. The result is a new city layout, which, developing from the South Campus, with the adjacent city and the Ahna Park linked.
Analogous to the conceptual attitude of the university, the buildings remain direction-free and represent the free access to the disciplines and study offers. The surfaces are carpeted with simple natural stone slabs and paving. The most important existing trees and the grove on the Moritzstraße are integrated.
In the design of the new open space, numerous natural stones of various sizes, designs and shapes were used and significantly shape the topography of the campus site. BESCO, which specializes in natural stone projects, supplied all the natural stones of this project. The natural stones were individually manufactured for each construction phase and delivered to the construction site on demand.
