Carba Center 30 project master plan, Bern-Liebefeld

Liebefeld, an old industrial site with a main building subject to a preservation order and a pavilion-like development, is located where the town of Bern meets Köniz. The master plan developed by Itten Brechbühl creates clearly defined spatial lines in urban terms and fans the buildings out along them. Attractive spaces and squares are the result of the concept. In future, the area is to be developed in stages with individual buildings along the perimeter, in order to create thoroughfares. A new square will be created at the centre which will serve as a common place of orientation and with which the entrances to houses will be aligned.
