Green and dense: that works

>> This is about renaturalizing the city: Leaf green is by far the most efficient and cost-effective means of mitigating heat stress and environmental aftereffects. The Biotope City proves that both, high-density and green housing are  possible and affordable. <<

Helga Fassbinder, Urban Planner and Founder of the Biotope City Foundation

 

Many of the measures, which make a relevant difference compared to “conventional” planning, consist of process design and coordination as well as technological or constructional innovations that will not be visible with the naked eye after completion. These “hidden treasures” are made visible and understandable through publications.

Climate adaptation measures in subsidized housing play an increasingly important role, but the principle of affordability must not be neglected. The Biotope City Wienerberg shows that dense development and effective greening are compatible. The IBA_Vienna carries these aspects further so that similar measures can be established in other areas.

Building a green city together!
From the very beginning, all the stakeholders involved have worked together on the basis of the mission statement “Biotope City”. To operationalize this mission statement, the planners, developers, consultants and municipal departments have subsequently drawn up a detailed quality catalog.

The shadow of a tree is much more effective in the summer heat than the shadow of a building. At Biotope City, tall trees with a trunk circumference of up to 35 centimeters are planted from the very beginning. Inner courtyards and rooftop areas are used for gardening, the facades are planted with wild wine and wisteria (climbing plants), and the loggias and balconies are equipped with structurally already integrated planters. The design of partial areas as “G’stättn” (a Viennese German term for fallow land and natural grassland) and “rain gardens” is still largely untested in housing construction: Unsealed green surfaces serve as catchment and seepage surfaces during heavy rainfalls.

With the GREENPASS®, microclimate simulations were carried out for the Biotope City in order to optimally coordinate urban development and measures, and to achieve the highest possible climatic effects with the least possible effort. The planned measures achieve a cooling of the air flowing through by 2°C. Thus, the Biotope City has a cooling effect not only on its own residential and working population, but also on the surrounding city.

Overview of all projects in this quarter:


Candidates in quarter

AMELIE

 
Each unit was planned with outdoor spaces and has high standards of fittings and furnishings after completion. There are shading elements for the hot summer months. Planters on the balconies and partially greened facades support the green space concept.

HOCHH(IN)AUS

 
The project has envisaged measures that transform the new building into a “green gem”.

The Brick

 
An ecologically innovative multi-use building complex was developed here: two new buildings in the design of old commercial buildings with greened brick facades and elaborately landscaped surroundings.

Urban im Grünen leben

 
The load-bearing function is taken over by outer and middle walls, which permits a changeable spatial layout. The apartments can thus be extended or merged as required.

Ur­bane Achse I - Bauten für das Stadt­leben

 
The complex has a mobility center and a neighborhood center, both of which are cross-site, which means that they can be used by the residents of all building sites.

Ur­bane Achse II - Bauten für das Stadt­leben

 
The center of the neighborhood is formed by the so-called “micro-zone”, which offers a varied infrastructure for the neighborhood and for social encounters.

Wohnen mitten im Park

 
On a total of 11 floors, the most diverse floor plans for 2 to 4-room apartments are offered.

Zelda-Ka­plan-Weg 13+14

 
The ensemble of buildings on both sites forms the northern end of the footpath and creates a transition to the neighboring residential area.

Zelda-Ka­plan-Weg 5

 
The “green and sustainable” concept is intended to offer residents a particularly high quality of living and life.
