>> A community like a small village. People with highly diverse needs live together in individual forms of housing. People with and without disabilities showing a high degree of mutual respect and tolerance. Life affirming, open-minded towards others and anything new. Willing to be an active part of a community. This is 'Apfelbaum' - a village in the city. <<
Inclusion as a social attitude.
Apfelbaum is a visionary real estate project. It offers a counter-model to exclusion and displacement and focuses on inclusion as a social attitude: everyone should have the opportunity to live and reside in a community in a self-determined manner and with equal rights. With this claim, the project specifically addresses people with special needs such as people with physical or mental disabilities, but also senior citizens, students or single parents.
A diversity of offerings ensures affordability and inclusion.
The Apfelbaum project is being built in the Gründerzeit block (built between 1892 and 1900) between Ottakringerstraße, Helblinggasse and Geblergasse, in one of the most colorful and lively areas of the city. The new building complex covers around 12,500 m² of floor space over several plots. The project comprises different types of housing for around 280 people, including classic single and family apartments, shared apartments and apartments for students, as well as innovative forms of housing such as group living or assisted living. There will also be commercial space, a children's group, communal areas, studio spaces and a health center - an enrichment for the entire district. The use of housing subsidies will ensure the affordability of the apartments and a high social mix.
The village in the city.
The project Apfelbaum - Inclusive Living and Housing in Hernals focuses on the compatibility of the living environments of people with and without disabilities and also operates an exemplary neighborhood development in a Gründerzeit block. The project aims to promote self-determined living for people with and without disabilities. It wants to enable residents to grow older in their familiar surroundings or in their own homes, even if personal living conditions may change significantly.
The project is also characterized by extensive and nature-oriented open space design: many trees, shrubs and other plants filter and cool the air. They create a pleasant microclimate that cools in summer and counteracts the increasing overheating of the city. A spacious, park-like inner courtyard and rooftop gardens, where people can garden together, are accessible without barriers and invite people to linger. In addition to the communal areas, they represent meeting zones and support the community spirit of the project.
