The park in relation to its environment

‘Parc Molter’ lies in the heart of Mondercange and performs the function of a local recreation and leisure space for the town’s residents. At a higher level, it forms an integral part of a new and central green belt. The functional and spatial connection between ‘Parc Molter’ and the adjacent future residential area ‘Wunnen am Parc’ is to be emphasised through a uniform design language of the green areas and the public spaces.

Key design features

In the park are placeholders for a restaurant pavilion as well as for a nursery which lie along the circular path. A further trail runs straight through the park, parallel to the open section of the ‘Kaazebach’, and has been designed as a wooden walkway, providing a direct connection from ‘Cité Molter’ to the centre of Mondercange. The pathway encircles an open undulating park lawn, the heights of which orient themselves on the existing topography.

The lawn undulations run parallel to the ‘Kaazebach’ and result in a type of earth sculpture with higher and flatter wave valleys, providing opportunities for rest or recreation. They provide a series of diverse impressions of space, with different space perceptions being created depending on position. The two ends of the lawn undulations are marked by natural stone blocks, which offset the height difference in relation to the pathway and provide slope stabilisation. Integrated seating provides relaxation opportunities. On the eastern side of the stream, a greater retention surface has been reserved for the residential area to be built in the north of the park. The basins are permanently planted with wet vegetation and temporarily filled with water. In contrast to the interior park area, the area outside the walkway is densely planted with trees. This tree belt will enclose the construction area and form an overall buffer to the existing gardens of the adjacent properties.
