Promenade “Kiellinie” waterfont

The series of images for the Kiellinie waterfront area were commissioned by the Kiel City Planning Office and were created in close cooperation with our client.

The city of Kiel would like to redesign the promenade and road along the Kiel Fjord.
In order to be able to secure the funds from the federal program “Zukunft Stadtgrün” in a targeted manner, it was necesary to advertize a competition in a visual way. The fundamental ideas for the competition announcement should be publicly discussed and decided in advance. For this discourse between the public and the local Government, the City Planning Office wanted to see pictures which visualized the initial ideas which had been sketched out, without anticipating the later competition.

In terms of content, the pictures illustrate the integration water front and adjacent urban and green space. The concept is designed to reduce the speed along the waterfront and create new spaces for leisure and recreation as well pedestrian mobility and integreted cycle route. We have sketched this at three locations along the Kiellinie watefront. We chose a color and a few recurring elements to illustrate what would be “NEW” and to combine the images into coherent visual series.

We are now very curious to see what will ultimately be implemented and thank the City Planning Office for this very interesting brief and for the great cooperation.
