Stuttgart is an expanding urban centre in Southern Germany. A disused army base offered the opportunity to create a new town along the local city rail link. The main challenge was how to keep rainwater run-off at the same rate after development as before, as the site lies close to a tributary feeder to Stuttgart's main river, the Neckar, and is placed on a steep, heavy clay hill.

Scharnhauser Park near Ostfildern is laid out over 150 hectares, and is the largest urban development scheme in the Stuttgart Area in the early 21st century. The scheme was combined with the State Garden Show which has helped promote and phase in construction of the project.

The urban layout is inspired by an innovative and cost-effective rainwater management system which keeps rainwater on the surface in attractive streetscape detailing, and retains and filters run-off in a series of stepped technical multi-purpose parks and tree boulevards.

Not just the newts and bats are happy, this ecological infrastructure offers great places for children to play, adults to live and makes a valuable contribution to the greater watershed management of Stuttgart.

This project was carried out by Atelier Dreiseitl, now member of the Ramboll Group.
