„The project impresses with its innovative ecological concept that combines modular system construction design with a combination of district heating and geothermal energy for heating and cooling as well as green roofs.“
Ingrid Breckner, Member of the IBA Advisory Board
Living quality with high flexibility is achieved through a system construction design and an ecological concept with a combination of district heating and geothermal energy.
The facility offers flexible and demand-oriented apartments. The buildings follow different themes in their design, creating different identities. Thus, 15 SMART apartments for assisted living in community for young people and five to eight apartments for the Vienna women's shelters are offered. Equivalent comprehensive equipment packages are available as well as alternative models for deferring the basic cost contribution.
Climate change will be counteracted by innovative ceiling cooling and the use of geothermal energy and photovoltaics.
Various common areas are available on the site. The roofs are designed with toddler playgrounds and urban farming and also the rest of the open space in the ground floor zone is characterized by various recreational uses, which are linked to the vast open space of the entire area.
