A new residential project is about to be built to the midst of nature in the north of the Danube River. About 400 apartments will be located on Gerasdorfer Strasse in Vienna.
The idea of the masterplan is to mix three types of modern housing typologies (city, atrium and terrace houses) to create a varying appearance in the area and to provide a variety of living spaces. The green esplanade, the adjacent woodland and meadows, the central plaza and a kindergarten ensure the well-balanced life of all residents.
The new construction along Gerasdorfer Strasse takes the small-scale housing estate on the opposite side of the street into consideration, while the staggered height development prevents a break in scale with the adjacent buildings to the south. An attractive visual connection along the North/South axis guarantees views right through the new development to the forest behind.
