apartment building on Maximilianstraße

St. Pölten / Lower Austria

2017

A hall for living with ceiling heights of 2.80 meters is inserted in a prefabricated primary structure of horizontal floor decks – reinforced concrete columns, and a filigree ceiling system. The circulation system is conceived of as part of a vertical urban landscape that leaves ample room in front of the compact apartments’ doors and thanks to the balcony zones, creates space in front of the facades, as well. The fire-resistant concrete floor decks make possible a ventilated facade in wood-rail construction. In this way the floor plans that were optimized economically, yet are still versatile spatially and functionally.
