Scheffelstrasse residential and commercial building



 In a local centre in Vienna that has the character of a small town, where the existing development is a mix of buildings dating from the late 19th century to the present, an attempt is made to relate to the existing Gründerzeit (19th century) buildings that are more sculpturally complex and boast a rich variety of materials.

Opaque and transparent glass elements are set in larch frames that have a considerable depth on the room side. An outward tilted facade cladding above the strip windows houses the protection from the weather and the sun while also creating alternating effects of transparency and reflection, light and shadow.
