Residential Complex VORGARTENSTRASSE 98-106 has been selected as an Honorable Mention in the 2020 Architecture MasterPrize Awards (AMP). The 2020 edition of the Architecture MasterPrize has received the largest number of entries since the international architecture award began.
The newly completed residential complex comprises four residential towers that blend seamlessly into a lush landscape. The development extends along the street Vorgartenstrasse, and rises from a base containing one- and two-storey courtyard apartments to its top-floor residences sitting above middle floors with a variety of apartment types. A wide green strip along the street line resembles traditional look and character of Vienna’s Vorgartenstrasse street. It is divided into smaller gardens connected with a central green zone “Freie Mitte” by a network of pathways spread through the new residential area. The towers feature a clinker brick facade, whose materiality pays homage to the former railway station Wien Nord (North Vienna) while maintaining a strong identity in the new urban district that is coming into being.
Each apartment has a separate open space in the form of loggias or private gardens. The design blends the towers seamlessly into a natural landscape, adding lush greenery in-between the buildings.
The mission of the AMP is to advance the appreciation of quality architectural design worldwide. Celebrating creativity and innovation in the fields of architecture, landscape architecture, and interior design, the prize is open to submissions on a global level, accepting entries from architects all around the world.
