An urban residential project development in Vienna’s 12th district is underway – the so-called ‘Wildgarten – Wohnen am Rosenhügel’. By 2023 it will offer some 1,100 apartments. For site plots 5 and 7 schneider+schumacher have designed 14 buildings constructed from durable, ecological materials, which will create blocks of various heights and a total of 157 apartments.
All five block types will be constructed in monolithic brickwork. This gives each of the 14 blocks their own identity and a robust, structural, and highly textural quality. Other design elements include wooden-aluminium windows with external venetian blinds set in galvanized steel frames, plus balcony railings supporting metalwork pergolas.
