Carba Center 30, Bern-Liebefeld
The versatile cube in an area of urban development
The Carba site adjoins Weissenstein-Neumatt and the Vidmarhallen, and extends the existing urban space. The master plan developed by IttenBrechbühl together with the Köniz planning department, provides for a fan-shaped design with existing buildings and those under construction at right angles to each other. The area which has been planned as a mixed zone for work, services and living space, comprises four construction sites which will be developed in stages.
Construction site A will feature an elegant-looking cube with an interior courtyard which is intended for public use on the ground floor and otherwise for service companies.
The façades will feature a few, well-matched projecting and recessed elements with the result that the five-storey block will not look monolithic but will give the impression of gentle motion.
