feld72 has won the competition for the design of the Neu Leopoldau, a Youth Living residential complex in Leopoldau, a post-industrial area on the outskirts of Vienna. Based on the idea of creating community, the project utilizes overlaying, staggered, and connected spaces and communication areas to facilitate the feeling of a village.

Spaces throughout the building vary in use from a range of public to private and are flexible in their uses.

The monolithic structure with uniform window sized in a staggered arrangement [give the building] a simple and calm character. [Additionally, staggered] balconies included on each floor of the building give a more slender appearance - said the architects on a press release.

The ground floor of the building is essentially transparent, with outdoor trails leading into a large entrance, which opens up on the opposite side into community areas, including a kitchen.
