Imagine if this was the entrance or gateway to your home, your town or neighborhood? #GoodUrbanism means dignified entrances and portals. #Lübeck
#GoodUrbanism means building squares and streets for the public in the front, and to balance the public areas with increased levels of privacy by secluded #Courtyards, mews, backyards, hofs just a few steps from the busiest streets or liveliest squares. #Lübeck #Germany
#GoodUrbanism means building for the ages. A backyard townhouse can become a workshop, chapel, cafe, bookstore, startup, stables, bakery, factory, dentist, pharmacy, tattoo parlor, print shop, stained glass maker, newspaper office, or just someone's beloved home. #Lübeck #Germany
By building with the local tradition (in materials, techniques), you not only achieve economy, efficiency and predictable results, you also end up with that rarest of the rare, a real sense of place! #Odense #Denmark #GoodUrbanism
No one in their right mind would design a comfy living room, vestibule, cafeteria, bathroom, or dance hall without considering the floor of the room. In just the same way, #GoodUrbanism means providing for varied, beautiful street paving, like this courtyard in #Malmö, #Sweden.
Not all streets and alleys need to be "open", vaulted streets and buildings straddling alleys and passageways add character and creates great opportunities for creative use of limited space. Examples of #GoodUrbanism from #VillefranchesurMer, #Stockholm, #Jersualem, #Yazd.
To preserve the privacy and quiet of people living next to it and to make a street feel "whole" build walls, hedges, fences, portals etc., of local materials to fill in and cover any "gaps", as here in #Lüneburg, #Germany and #Odense, #Denmark. #GoodUrbanism
Forget about car parks and drive ways. Let's fill the gaps in our cities with secret gardens, romantic "rendez-vous", and places to cultivate the small, the fragile, the vulnerable.
