Vienna 21


The plot that measures 88 x 64 metres and has a site ratio of less than 1.0, which is unusual for Vienna, was defined in a preliminary zoning procedure together with the MA 21 (municipal department for district planning and land use) planning within a greater context. The core of the complex consists of two-storey row houses that measure 8 x 10 metres, with gardens at ground floor and terraces at first floor level. In some cases, the gardens, through which the houses are entered, have a covered outdoor area.


Near the approach to the complex cars can be parked beneath an elevated, two-storey stepped building. The single storey apartments have terraces or balconies that face south and are reached from an open deck (with additional common areas on the 1st floor).


On the north side, towards the still undeveloped area of the site, a slab building that is also south-facing, with staircase access to the apartments, single-storey flats on the 1st floor and maisonettes from the 2nd to the 3rd floor closes the square.
