Nominated: Residential Buildings of the Year 2021

Our project Residential Complex VORGARTENSTRASSE 98-106 has been nominated for the “Residential Buildings of the Year 2021” („Wohnbauten des Jahres 2021”) Award. The Callwey publishing house regularly presents the award to honour the best realised residential constructions and concepts. A top-class jury selected the 50 best residential projects.

The project 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.

Das Ringen um gerechte Verteilung und der schonende Umgang mit unseren Ressourcen sind die beiden wichtigsten Themen unserer Zeit. Sie betreffen die Architektur und unser Projekt „leistbares Wohnen“ unmittelbar.

 

The struggle for equitable distribution and the careful use of our resources are the two most prominent topics of our time. They directly affect architecture and our “affordable living“ project.
