Concept

The project assumes new typology of housing for Treisenberg. The new housing consists of series of connected terraced housing acting the same as contour lines, allowing more futuristic densified areas which would sustain the mountain attractivity, better than scattered uncontrolled growth.

Vitalizing the community from sustainable, social, touristic and urban point of views, benefiting from the subjected position of TB.

Aims The new housing typology aims in creating new sustainable environment for Triesenberg which is 1) more coping with topography and mountainous nature, 2) modern, more appealing look for residents, and 3) more energy efficient, consuming self produced energy contributing in the sustainability of the site and 4) more efficient densified areas for futuristic developments. Problems The main problem facing such typology is 1) the inhabitants’ acceptability. A percentage of inhabitants may refuse the change from the single family house to modern attached housing, 2) the problem of adjusting the fitting design for attached terrace housing, as building in mountainous site with large slopes like Triesenberg.

The Site

How? 1. Changing rural to Urban TB: - providing certain zones for residential vs. open areas and their futuristic extensions. - Changing the typology of scattered growth, into …… (Sketches) - Vitalizing and emphasizing the main center, as a social touristic gathering - Decentralization linear concept, which helps in sustaining the mountain’s view as well as the valley view. (Sketches) 2. Tourism - Benefitting from the location in the way to Steg and Malbun, and creating a touristic attraction station reviewing the wonderful view and the new center. (Map) - Developing hiking trails starting from Vaduz and Triesen, passing by Triesenberg, Steg reaching Malbun. - Creation of new resorts area instead of the unused highlands, as people wouldn’t stay at that much height, but stay for some days, near to the skiers’ paradise, Malbun. 3. Energy Problem - Providing more frequent electrically generated buses among the whole community, instead of the extensive use of fossil fueled vehicles 4. Social Relations - Activating the center, by creating more areas for interaction and gathering of inhabitants - Creation of inner agricultural “courts” between houses which create more interaction, in addition to avoiding scattered densification.


Triesenberg is typical mountaineous community. The mountaineous community enjoys subjected location, marvellous view of the Rhein Valley, and a history different from other Liechtenstein’s communities. Its Area 297 km2 Its Height above sea level 886 m Its inhabitants are about 2566 inhabitant, in July 2008 Population density 86 inhabitant/km2 Number of Cars around 2000 c ar The community is known to its Walser origins, impacting the architecture typology - either between traditional Walser architecture or Modern ones.

TRIESENBERG

NEW HOUSNIG TYPOLOGY

Concept Infleunces Inspired by the advantage of steep slopes which allows buildings in both sides of streets to enjoy the Rheine Valley view. The Wall structures used to sustain the steep slope and to build street, they cope with the contour line s and enviromental aspects of the site. In addition to the chances the site of Triesenberg offering since the whole urban growth is just going along streets because of steepness. Also the site offering lots of free areas which could accomodate the new typology of building.

diagrams idea


Gamprin .The floor of the Rhine Valley covers half of the country. The municipality of Gamprin, which also includes the old settlement of Bendern, lies on the southernmost foothills of the Eschnerberg. Why do I choose Gamprin? .Because in my opinion it contains numerous problems as a community; that makes the place very interesting to study

GAMPRIN

Project title Urban studio Testing the density . Communities in Liechtenstein use to be low in density. We are testing diverse ways to densify the area, with a different building typology of density. The Intention of densify the urban area and landscape to achieve a more self-sufficient and sustainable community. It’s easy to see the long distance between building. The way of fill the parcels is irregular and they has a low percentage of occupancy. Patterns .Growth follows the topography and flows. The orientation of the buildings is almost totally free because owners have a huge space to build and the basic patterns of orientation are roads and sun, both orients the main axis of the houses. There are houses which form groups and another ones looks climbed the hill. The open space is quite natural, almost without human intervention Main Street: The placement of the buildings is basically related to the road. Combination of housing, public buildings such as bank, school... and local housing. Central Part: The infrastructure is cause of the intersection of two roads where exists different size houses. Here, orientation has more freedom and individual houses form small agrupations.
