Energy Efficiency and Timber Construction in Subsidized Housing

>> The city cooperation between Vienna and Vancouver makes it possible to turn the exchange of experience into real benefits for residents and businesses by promoting successful strategies and new technologies in our two cities. <<

Andrea Reimer, Former City Councilor in Vancouver

 

As a result of a developers’ competition of the 2018-2020 housing offensive, subsidized rental apartments in a timber construction will be built on a plot of land in Vienna - Stadlau. The building material timber is used extensively here in the supporting structure and design of the outdoor space. A system construction method with a high degree of prefabrication is intended to bring economic and technical advantages. Intelligent hybrid solutions made of timber and concrete combine the advantages of the two building materials in terms of fire, noise and weather protection. The heat supply works up to 100% from renewable energy sources without the use of fossil energy, through the use of ambient heat supplemented with a photovoltaic system.

Innovative housing models for single parents.
As part of the theme of the developers’ competition, the challenge was to design innovative and affordable housing models for the growing group of single parents. Building a social network and promoting contacts with neighbors are particularly important for single parents. The housing offers, floor plans and equipment variants of the project are specifically tailored to different living situations and family constellations. For example, eleven Caritas “MUKI-mobil” apartments for single parents, one apartment for an in-home daycare provider on the ground floor, a nursery school with three groups, a central communal space and spacious areas for bicycles and prams will be built.

Open space as a moving landscape.
The project provides a wide and flexible range of open spaces and communal spaces, as well as a Mobility Point and facility management. The naturally lit underground car park is of particular importance as a multifunctional space. 

City cooperation Vienna – Vancouver.
Within the framework of the IBA_Vienna, cooperations are entered into with other cities in order to establish the topic of social housing, for which Vienna is known worldwide, outside Vienna as well. Not only are local discussions and developments in these cities supported, but in return valuable experiences and innovations from other systems are brought into the further development of social housing in Vienna.

One of these cooperations has been entered into with the Canadian city of Vancouver, which, like Vienna, has been ranked for many years as one of the world’s most livable cities. In terms of content, the cooperation refers to a transfer of know-how and exchange of experience with the focus on “energy-efficient housing” and is therefore carried out on the Viennese side together with wohnfonds_wien and the Department for Energy Planning (MA 20) of the City of Vienna.

As part of the exchange of experience, a housing project is to be implemented in Vancouver, which is primarily dedicated to the topic of the Vienna 4-pillar model in social housing (architecture, ecology, economy, social sustainability) and refers in its applicability to the local conditions in Vancouver. At the same time, a project is to be implemented in Vienna with the developer competition in Waldrebengasse, which focuses entirely on the traditional Canadian theme of “timber construction”. In addition, both buildings will maximize the use of renewable energy and are to be operated without fossil sources of energy. The procedure and results of this developer competition will also be presented at the IBA_Vienna and in international exchange with the City of Vancouver.
