Ottakringer Strasse 26/Veronikagasse 31,
A new residential complex is being constructed near the centre of Vienna at Ottakringer Straße 26 and Veronikagasse 31. This L-shaped plot is to be developed with a 7-storey building on Ottakringer Straße of 32 apartments over a ground floor street-facing shop unit. On the adjacent Veronikagasse a 6-storey residential building with 20 apartments will be built. In the courtyard between these two buildings, a free-standing 2-storey building of 8 apartments is to be constructed as well as a children’s playground. A pedestrian path connects the entire development.
Each apartment has an outdoor area in the form of a loggia, balcony, terrace or a garden. The roofs of each building will provide private roof terraces for the residents. A basement car park accessed via Ottakringer Strasse connects the whole development.
The façades on Ottakringer Strasse and Veronikagasse are deliberately designed to stand out in the neighbourhood through a delicate brick façade in pale yellow tones combined with intensive facade planting. Individual planters in the façade are connected with tension cables to create a trellis of climbing plants over the entire façade. This serves both to create acoustic separation between the apartment loggias and the busy Ottakringer Strasse, plus providing shade, privacy and a green outlook for apartments themselves.
