apartment building with office space Am Hundsturm

Vienna 5


Situating the building’s circu­lation system at the center fragments the building massing and puts the stairway in a spatial relationship to the street heading toward it. The apartment types change as the building rises. Loggias of differing widths projecting out from the elevation toward the street – some extending to the building line, others stopping short of it – create private outdoor spaces large enough to accommodate different functions. They also allow the outermost layer of the facade to stand out in high relief.
