Atelier Thomas Pucher has won first prize in an invited competition to realize a cluster of “Urban Terraces” in Vienna. Described as a product of the “modern patchwork city,” the project is designed to connect its residents to the surrounding districts and open space through the “countless sight lines” preserved by the circular nature of the mid-rise buildings. This is intended to achieve a sense of “urban porosity” within a stacked residential landscape.

The result is a porous urban intervention that acts as a moderator or host between the neighborhoods. Image Courtesy of Atelier Thomas Pucher +19

“The round shape of the houses grants each apartment several view directions,” says Atelier Thomas Pucher. “Each apartment is a ‘corner flat’ with optimal exposure. A ring of different terraces such as French balconies, raised beds and two-story loggias surround the apartments, and maximize the residential quality of the zone.”

When complete in 2016, the project will be comprised of seven homes and 201 apartments, as well as a business start-up center with office space - all connected by semi-public green space.
