Projects / Troststrasse

Loft conversions are becoming increasingly difficult - especially if they are to be placed on a Gründerzeitstyle house. Figuratively speaking, the task quickly mutates into a “cat on a hot tin roof.”

Several vacant substandard apartments on the corner of Troststraße / Rechberggasse made it possible to fund the base renovation. Taking full advantage of the rules for Gaupen, the aging apartment building was given a recessed 4th floor and an attic. Old and new combine to form a harmonious whole - for example, the new dormer windows lie exactly in the axes of the old facade; its color scheme resumes the gray of the now upgraded entrance on the ground floor. “Of course, you have to be able to distinguish the new from the old. There should be an exciting contrast, but old and new must not fight each other. “

Seven apartments remained the same, the remaining 28 were renovated and partially merged. There were also nine more on the two new upper floors. The number of apartments passed through now amounts to 36 in total. Their floor plans vary between 40 and 102 m2. On the courtyard side, most of them received balconies or loggias, two loggias accessible from the staircase are for general use. A ramp system on the ground floor and the subsequent installation of a lift make all apartments accessible. A spacious bicycle and pram room, a mailbox throw-through system, as well as a garbage room with service access on the street side complete the building.
