Urbany The Good Urban Village

Urbany in Berlin is the first Good Urban Village that ZS, in close collaboration with a housing company, will bring into being. Organised like a village in the city, everything that makes up healthy, happy, big-city life in a vibrant community is networked together in the mixed-use district.

The focus of the car-free district is a range of offers that can be used together to promote both the community and interactions within the community and are aimed at health and activity. The wide range of housing is aimed at all income groups and age groups for a healthy social mix.

The goal: good neighbours included

  • A vibrant community
  • A range of communal offers
  • Healthy social mix

Functioning urban communities can offer potential solutions to some of the pressing challenges of our time. Urbany shows how places can transform into robust and resilient communities when people are offered opportunities to network, shape and grow together.
