apartment building on Bergmannstraße

Bregenz / Vorarlberg


The building, which dates to the nineteenth century, was retained and a two-story addition was placed atop it. A lighting slit above the cornice separates the two parts. The upper level of the addition is set back on all sides, and there are terraces on three sides. A stair integrated in the volume leads from the lower roof terrace to a smaller viewing terrace at the very top. Both terraces are shielded visually from the street below.
