apartment building on Laxenburgerstraße

competition, 1st prize

Vienna 10

2002

On the ground level the project establishes a publicly accessible permeability; in the middle zone, an outdoor commons 7 meters wide and nearly 150 meters long; and on the roof, large terraces. In this way, despite the high density, the project provides added value spatially and potential for future developments. The airiness of the transverse connections contrasts starkly with the vertical circulation. The lattice-like framework makes possible a variety of paths across the site.
