The multi-part building with 404 residential units as well as additional commercial and office space is located directly on Handelskai, in the 20th district of Vienna, opposite the Danube Island. On the ground floor there is a commercial area with approx. 3,333m2 and a separate entrance and access to the underground car park with 250 parking spaces.
The residential complex is divided into five contiguous structures. An elongated structure with ten floors above ground extends along the Handeslkai. The four other buildings, each with nine storeys, are located at right angles towards Wehlistraße. This building structure creates quiet backyards behind the elongated part, which are accessible via a grandstand-like staircase in the inner courtyard and are used as playgrounds for children and young people.
The 4 residential buildings offer a mix of 1 – 3 room apartments. Each apartment has its own storage room on the 1st floor as well as its own outdoor area in the form of a balcony, loggia or terrace. Some of the top floor apartments have a private roof garden.
To promote communication between the neighbors, there is an urban loggia on each floor of the building on Handelskai, a communal open space that creates two multi-storey open spaces through two incisions in the facade with a view of the Danube, which are available to all residents and by everyone Floor are accessible
On the roofs of the different houses there is a communal roof garden and a pool with a sunbathing area, and in the adjoining component there is the associated changing room with sanitary units.
The building will be constructed using a solid reinforced concrete construction with full thermal insulation. Partial areas are designed as rear-ventilated facades with facade panels. A front facade with manually adjustable ESG glazing serves as noise protection. Visually, the courtyard-facing balconies, loggias and terraces blend in elegantly with the lightweight construction of the fully insulated facade.
The photovoltaic system is located on one of the flat roofs, the electricity generated from it is used for personal consumption. All other unused roof areas are extensively greened.
