City entrance Monheim

The Rhine promenade Monheim shows an already implemented connection between the north and the bank of the Rhine park, which marks one of the most important entrance points to the town. The historic St. Mary's Chapel as a symbol of the shore path and the adapted old house stock form a typical green ensemble. Striking at the crossing point is the Shell Tower in a prominent location. A transition to the Rhine is prevented by the separating infrastructure of the streets. In the course of the development of a town entrance the traffic routeing will be changed and a new spatial caesura developed with new urban supplements, which manages to bind the environment and to give the town entrance an address, through the Kriescher street, as an important centre axis receives it urban development completion. The design picks up the characteristics of the place and connects these with the link from town entranced plaza and chapel village green. The tower is formed into an attractive centre. While floating around the structure the entrance plaza with its flagging and the chapel green with its mixed plates and pavement surface merge into a carpet, summarizes a circumferential seating edge the inner core. By forming a gently guided lawn with loose overhanging deciduous trees, it becomes a new point of identification. While the new entrance plaza is represented as an open space, the area around the chapel is carefully developed as a more intimate urban space. The constricting situation is solved by the exemption of the chapel and offset the limiting retaining wall to the street. Ramp places with steps and trees give this forecourt a new significant area and form a connection between North and South. Through continuation of the link, with the integration of Rhine shore street, the boardwalk becomes a part of the city entrance. The new ferry dock is designed as a cantilever arm, which slides over the riverside of the Rhine and becomes an attraction and haunt.
