These three buildings at Vienna’s 21st district are integrated into a larger residential block. Located at a transition area between vibrant city life and countryside, the quarter is transforming from a commercial to a residential area.

Additional to planning these three buildings, Malek Herbst generated the master plan for the whole housing development. One focus was put on creating open space within this densely populated residential area, and another one on finding the ideal lighting for the development through an elaborate orientation concept.

The lucky fact that almost all of the perimeter block was constructed at once led to the opportunity to set up a large green courtyard instead of the common segmented lots. 

An anthracite front featuring white frame elements facing the street, and the contrasting white façade on the back, characterise the appearance of the three buildings by Malek Herbst. The dark front emphasises the urban character of the estate, while the light façade facing the courtyard offers a more secluded, green ambience.

There are 101 flats offering a wide variety of types. The furnishing is made from high-grade natural materials and will be adapted to the individual requirements of the residents. All of the flats feature spacious private exterior areas.
