This residential development consists of three city mansions that are connected through a common basement and a common ground floor. Accessed from the elevated pavement, all three buildings possess a first, a second, and a third floor. The ground floor is below street level coming from Hanselmayergasse, while the garden entrance is at ground level.

The complex consists of 19 residential units with plots from 39m2 to 297m2, featuring spacious terraces and open areas, as well as underground parking with 28 lots.

The façade comprises of prefabricated, sandblasted ferroconcrete segments on the upper floors, and sand-lime brick facing formwork on ground floor. 

The building is horizontally structured by wraparound cornice along the floor slabs. They fall in line with large terrace areas, featuring frameless glazing along the whole width of the buildings on the north and south.

Due to the hillside location and the significantly higher buildings along Hanselmayergasse, the roof is visible and was included into the design concept.

The minimalistic design language used is a reference to “Haus Ahorner” by Carl Auböck, the building that was originally built at this site in the 1960s.
