the property is located on a steep slope at the foot of pöstlingberg in the immediate vicinity of the danube. like all buildings along this residential estate’s main street, its width amounts only to 21 m. some of the neighbouring structures extend almost to the property’s boundary; therefore an orientation towards east and west was of lesser importance.

the building is divided into 2 slim structures. this division increases the effect of the interspace between the structures; it generates a strong relation between the two and ensures the desired link between all floors on this steep property.
