residential complex in Vienna
project at Franz&Sue, Vienna (Austria), realized
No master plan, but together for diversity! Three developers and three teams of architects cooperatively developed a new urban district in the south of Vienna. Ten individually designed residential buildings, numerous green areas, squares and passages now make the place identity-forming, livable and communicative.
We planned three of the total of ten residential buildings, taking up the intended small-scale development with pronounced jumps in height and placing several small-scale house types on each of our building sites. We used a design language that does not appear imposed and can age well in the best sense. A design that is understandable to the residents and has a recognition value for them - their home with which they can identify!
What all of the more than 500 apartments in the Carrée have in common is that they have their own open spaces (garden, loggia, balcony) and can be reached directly or by a short route via a square in the center of the neighborhood. A community center for all, two medical practices, a kindergarten and five commercial spaces round out the diverse offerings. Instead of wide streets, numerous green areas, squares and passages make the district livable and communicative.
