About 120 years after Otto Wagner and Max Fabiani, thanks to the trust of our client (BUWOG), we were allowed to revive the Viennese tradition of facade design with tiles in our component “Orchidea” / living for single parents. A touch of Milan (Arch. L. Caccia Dominioni) was also involved in the inspiration…
The “Orchidea” section of the “Kennedy Garden” ensemble (commissioned by BUWOG) with 124 residential units in 1140 Vienna was handed over to the residents this fall. We wish a lot of joy while living in the living spaces designed by us with a lot of love!
Also the generously & diversely designed common rooms for the house community are ready for a Merry Christmas!
Step by step our allotment house “Villa minimale” is approaching completion…
A small house very big – a space miracle, flowed through by nature with a panoramic view into the green and to the stars…

Here is an excerpt from the jury protocol: “The quality of the urban design concept is particularly appreciated, as a skilful staggering of the heights of individual buildings takes in visual axes and creates a lively neighborhood silhouette.”
We are looking forward to realizing a valuable contribution to a lively quarter for our client “Wien Süd” with 226 high-quality apartments.

A timeless pattern successfully continues!
From Augustinerstraße to Kärtnerstraße, the Führichgasse, in Vienna’s 1st district, will be transformed into a barrier-free encounter zone. The proven pattern, which has already been used in the Pedestrian Zone Vienna City, will be further spun.
The project was developed – as with the encounter zone HG+ – by a private initiative around Dr. Wolfgang Spitzy.
The first construction phase was completed on June 15th 2018.
Our construction site at the Eggenberger Gürtel in Graz is in full swing. Since the end of September 2017, the residential complex with a total of 220 apartments, a community building and an underground car park with 110 parking spaces is being built.
Today, with the ceremonial laying of the final stone, the eight-month renovation work on the Stephansplatz was completed.
With: Vice Mayor Maria Vassilakou, City District Chief Markus Figl, MA 28 boss Bernhard Engleder and cathedral priest Toni Faber.
In new splendor, 11,500 square meters, with 36,400 panels radiate in the heart of Vienna.

One to go!
The construction workers on Stephansplatz are already in top gear. Pavement renewal follows in spring 2017 – this will merge seamlessly into the part of the Vienna City pedestrian precinct already set up in 2008/09.
Around 60,000 pedestrians move along Kärntnerstrasse and Graben every day. In order to react accordingly to high-pressure usage and pedestrian frequency, the design provides for extensive empty spaces, complemented by a few accessories: a new pavement surface pattern, a site-specific lighting concept, plain-and-simple resting decks and benches for lingering, reorganisation of the front gardens (“Schanigärten”) and planting of new trees on Kärntnerstrasse. The redesigned pedestrian precinct is intended both for residents and for tourists as a uniquely attractive urban space in the heart of Vienna.

At last! Barely ten years after the competition start in 2007 the go-ahead has been given for the redesign of Stephansplatz.
The pavement surface is being renewed and made to merge seamlessly with the part of the Vienna City pedestrian precinct set up in 2008/09. The design elements of the ensuing leisure space include new street lighting and more seating – without compulsion to buy.
