Conversion of an office building on the Donaukanal into a residential building, including addition of two new storeys
An office building on the Brigittenauer Lände in Vienna’s 20th district has been transformed into a modern residential building. It comprises two wings: one facing the Donaukanal and one looking onto a green courtyard. Most of the flats are smaller freehold flats, each with a balcony, which were designed with investors and singles in mind. The seven larger penthouses with spacious terraces are accessed by means of their own lift. The façade was given a homogeneous appearance with an elegant anthracite colour; the playful, golden decorative railings serve to break up the austerity of the architecture.
