Gudrunstraße Fifty business apartments and six offices were constructed in a new building on an empty lot in Vienna...
From the architect: The first phase focused on supporting work for the necessary rededication. In further phases, optimal light conditions were achieved by orienting all of the apartments facing South-East. Noise pollution was reduced by the same measure since the orientation towards a more quiet side street acted as natural sound abatement.
Following the client’s brief of modern temporary living spaces, these affordable micro-apartments offer maximized spaciousness and comfort. Each apartment is accessible via an arcade and external staircase and features a balcony. The compact floor plan consists of a generous main corridor, a bedroom area, sanitary facilities, and a living space with a pitched roof oriel and a balcony. Minimizing the results of the adjacent room in a bright and generous living space that meets the dynamic needs of the future residents.
The building's facade is comprised of stacked traditional Viennese Schrebergardens (small, intimate garden communities), expressing a strong character in terms of urban development in a neighborhood characterized by predominantly commercial use.
