Text description provided by the architects. This project is located in a condensed living/shopping area in the wider centre of Vienna, next to one of the main shopping avenues, Mariahilfer Straße. A new built backyardhouse and a soft renovation of the existing historic apartment building, located at the streetfront of the site. Furthermore here a loft conversion was done as well.
In the backyard an old workshop and apartment building was removed and on its place a new 5-storey-apartment building was errected. A definitly modern facade gives an interesting contrast to the common historic atmosphere. The court and the backward facade working as green surfaces and as kind of sound insulation to the busy area outside.
