apartment building and gym on Hollgasse

Vienna 4


A gym as an eyecatcher for the general public is slid underneath the apartment building and extends across the entire courtyard. This creates a raised courtyard, for which we designed a garden. Access to the single-story units is had via an asymmetrically arranged corridor on every other story. The floor plans of the apartments are small in width, and extend either one or two axes. The apartments are oriented to the garden and to the west; they are fully glazed and have loggias along their entire fronts. On the upper levels are maisonette apartments and units that reach from the building’s front to back.
