The Wild Garden - Residing on Rosenhügel

Vienna, 2020
Residential buildings
Competition 1st Prize

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 139 apartments.

All five block types will be constructed in monolithic brickwork. An exterior applied brickwork render offers additional wind protection and is pigmented in different pastel colours, depending on the type of building. 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.
