K6, high-rise on Kundratstraße

Vienna 10

2007

The zoning prescribed elliptical building massing. It stipulated a 70-meter longitudinal axis and a 26-meter cross axis. By working with glazed loggias staggered from floor to floor, we interpreted and shaped the structure three-dimensionally as a residential tower. The loggia mesh is like a chain bracelet slipped on the high-rise wrist. The two different ways the loggias are positioned determine the apartments’ floor plans.
