Wienerberg apartment high-rise

Description
In central Europe, high-rise buildings are only rarely to be found in publicly subsidised housing. The floor plans of the apartments in this building are ac- cordingly unspectacular and dictated predominantly by economic considera- tions: the building comprises 103-m² large three-room apartments as well as 66-m²-large two-room apartments. The southwest façade with large loggias clad with printed glass elements contrasts strongly with the smaller windows and folding elements of the northeast façade. The building is rotated slightly to avoid apartments that face only north, and the plans span the corner so that they receive light from at least two direc- tions.Although the floor plan configu- rations are not especially innovative, the realisation of a residential high-rise building with non-luxury apartments signifies an approaching paradigm shift in the appreciation of this housing typology.
