Residential Construction – Winner “Built in 2007”

The Kuefsteingasse project was chosen by the City of Vienna Municipal Department 19 - Architecture and Urban Design (MA 19) as one of the best projects of the year and chosen for the “Built in 2007” exhibition. It includes overlapping maisonettes units which are oriented toward the courtyard for the most part and have either a loggia or rooftop terrace.

Fundamentals

The building demonstrates the possibility of working with differing road widths as well as a variety of building heights. The distinctive components of the Kuefsteingasse project – overlapping and penetrating – lead around the lower part of the building at the corner of Draskovichgasse. The components form a dynamic unit and the materials are executed in different ways.

Orientation

Each apartment has a loggia or roof terrace, which is primarily oriented toward the large, leafy courtyard to the southwest. This orientation is achieved by overlapping maisonette units, providing a reference to the two very different qualities of the courtyard and the street. All 19 units were sold before or during construction.
