Marinaquartier Regensburg

The former slaugh­ter­house is today the vibrant centre of a roughly eleven hectare, mixed urban district with 400 res­i­den­tial units and 300 jobs in the service sector. The area is an important building block for overall urban de­vel­op­ment in the eastern area of Re­gens­burg. Leisure fa­cil­i­ties enliven 1.5 hectares of greenery and areas of water which link the com­mer­cial­ly used area around the slaugh­ter­house building to the res­i­den­tial districts of Marina Quartier. From the overall urban planning via land-use planning to building planning, ASTOC supported the trans­for­ma­tion process of the slaugh­ter­house complex. One third of the res­i­den­tial de­vel­op­ments, for example, are designed by ASTOC. In terms of pro­por­tions and scale, they blend with the neigh­bour­ing res­i­den­tial areas and rein­ter­pret terraced housing as a style, and the result is a district with an urban flair in direct proximity to the historic centre of Re­gens­burg.

As an important company in the East Bavarian economy, the Old Slaugh­ter­house in Re­gens­burg, opened in the 1880s near the city centre, was steadily extended through ad­di­tion­al cattle market halls and stables until the 1950s. After its closure in the 1990s, the site between the historic old town and the port district with its adjoining red light area lay derelict for a long time. The quality of this in­dus­tri­al monument was only re­dis­cov­ered with the passage of time. Segmental arches re­fur­bished in ac­cor­dance with preser­va­tion orders in Zollinger lamellar design as well as a hipped roof con­struc­tion with groin vaulting and neo-Roman cast iron supports, today span a pres­ti­gious congress and con­fer­ence centre.
