Once you enter the Bleicheli area, the redesigned Raiffeisen quarter reveals one of the main objectives of its concept before you have even set foot in it: a blazing red, soft floor covering made of granulated rubber boldly attracts the visitor’s attention, embodying the welcoming gesture of breaking up the introverted, heterogeneous character of the district. The perception of the Raiffeisen quarter as a fissured conglomerate of leftover areas and traffic functionalities has undergone a lasting change, with the new flooring unifying every square and spared spot into a homogeneous whole whose inviting extension goes as far as the pedestrian zone.
