To the true, the beautiful, the good for better real estate. 


The northernmost Italian square. The plan for the project was inspired by the architecture of Italian squares based on the cathedral city’s Roman history.

Aa-project: Ovum

Historical design details that have proven their worth in the past were to be resurrected and reinvented in this modern development. As a result, squares such as the Piazza dell’Anfiteatro in Lucca provided the inspiration for the ‘Ei’ (Egg) in Braunsfeld.

The cropped oval creates an unmistakable and interconnecting shape. Multiple arches form a continuous ground floor plinth with an arcade passage on which the clinker-brick façades are built.

With regard to urban development, a genuine piece of city with buildings lining the streets was created that encapsulate an urban space with welcoming qualities –

the northernmost Italian square. This distinctive architecture was also eponymous here:

Ovum = (Egg(cell))
