In Süßenbrunnerstraße West in Vienna’s Donaustadt district, a new residential quarter with 248 housing units is being built.
The reorganization of the buildings results in three urban squares, which are supplemented with appropriate community functions, creating a living quarter. In the north of the site, oriented towards the park corner, a bicycle repair café is created, inviting people to stroll and repair.
By opening up the building constellation towards the park, the structures receive more light and air and connect the living area with the green area. Not only does the outdoor space benefit, but the apartments also gain more light and, above all, floor plans that are open on two sides. In terms of urban planning, the building area is loosened up and connects it better with the neighbouring properties and the adjacent park.
The diversity of the building structures creates different and exciting forms of development. From spacious hallways to central corridors and through staircases and arcades, a great variety of apartments is created.
In the point buildings, all apartments are planned as corner apartments, which are lit on two sides. As a result, the kitchens are often close to the façade, which is ideal for ventilation. Apartments with pergolas are cut through and thus gain free space on both sides. In all other buildings, all apartments are oriented on two sides. All B-flats have a loggia recess, which extends the number of viewing directions.
The facades of the building volumes are designed in independent colours. A green base of two- to three-story planting grids integrates the buildings into nature and the park. Recurring window formats and balconies create internal cohesion. The spacious balconies are equipped with planter boxes for individual contributions to the building greening.
