The Studentenwerk Niederbayern/Oberpfalz is building a new residential complex for the students of the TUM Camus Straubing. A new building with approx. 85 residential units is to be built in the Stutzwinkel construction area. The jury meeting took place on January 28, 2021 at the end of a Europe-wide architecture competition.

Due to the corona pandemic, the competition exhibition cannot take place on site in Straubing as originally planned. Instead, the competition works can be viewed in an online exhibition.

In a preliminary selection process, 15 architecture firms were selected from 62 applications. The jury has now awarded the four best competition entries.

The winners of the competition are:

1. Price: gruber locher architekten zt gmbh, Bregenz (Austria)

Judgment of the jury for the 1st prize:

The architects divide their residential complex into two parallel blocks, which organize an intermediate area for access and lively communication around open inner courtyards. The student living, which is consistently characterized by the addition of identical living cells, is enriched by the social coexistence in the "in-between area". Overall, the greening of the building with tall trunks looks very generous and integrates the facility into the adjacent park-like uses. The chosen modular construction supports the almost exclusive use of renewable raw materials. The predominant use of wood rounds off the ecological concept. The energy concept is sustainable and convincing. Overall, it is a work that creatively interprets the task of a contemporary student residence and enables high-quality, atmospheric indoor and outdoor spaces for residents.
