Housing Schönbrunner Straße



Schönbrunner Straße 76,


At the corner of Reinprechtsdorfer Straße and Schönbrunner Straße, a new residential building is being developed. The centrally located, but very small site is oriented north-south and connects to adjacent buildings to the east. To the north, on the Rechte Wienzeile, the Reinprechtsdorfer Bridge spans the Wien River.

On 8 above-ground floors (including 6 standard floors and one attic floor), 15 new social dwellings of 40 – 86 m², will be built. On the ground floor, a community room with a café for parents with children and a social room will be created, both directly accessible from the street and the central staircase. The main residential entrance is located directly on Schönbrunner Straße.

The residential building is accessed via a central staircase on the eastern boundary of the site. This stair benefits from natural light on each floor via windows bringing daylight from a light well at the boundary of the adjacent existing building.

Each floor provides 2 or 3 separate apartments, each with its own outdoor area in the form of loggias, balconies or – on the top floor – a roof terrace. The flats are largely planned to enjoy views from two different sides of the building.

The ground floor is slightly set back from the floors above and is designed with large glazed areas, giving a sense of generosity and spatial connection to the surrounding streetscape. On the upper floors, the building is enclosed by a horizontal concrete frame in which plant troughs are embedded on each floor level. In combination with tension cables and an automatic irrigation system, a three-dimensional, living green façade will be created, increasing the quality of living spaces through natural cooling and shade to the loggias and living rooms.
