residential building Schönbrunnerstrasse 158, Wien

residential building comprising 25 rental flats funded through a special funding scheme

the residential building is located in a densely populated urban area. nonetheless, it opens up to the outside by way of spacious access and communication spaces as well as a continuous glass facade in front of the loggias. the key architectural element is the ‘green lung’. it extends all the way from the green inner courtyard to the interior of the building and the top floor, and serves as an access point that also provides natural lighting. combined with intelligent lighting design and differentiated floor plans, this residential building reflects the architects’ commitment to urban living.
