Quartier Normand, Speyer
The historical building ensemble as a given frame shows regional diversity and identity. 8.500m² former military buildings used as flats for soldiers and officers’ bureaus have been refurbished. This area in the center of the town was isolated for 110 years. In 2003/2004, the city of Speyer sold the historic buildings to Osika GmbH for premium renovation.

Living and working in a historical ambience means to maintain the existing architectural culture and create new residential designs through sustainable, future-oriented renovation and utmost exibility.
- division into manageable owner communities (House-in-house principle)
- addition of individual free areas for each unit
- various housing offers for different user groups
- development of individual layouts design from one-room apartments to loft apartments
- combined commercial and residential use
- sophisticated outdoor spaces are integral part of project
By this way, these new “old” parts of the city have not only been sustainable renovated and developed for their own benefit, but are additionally setting an example that is being followed in neighbouring districts.
