Invited urban planning competition for the creation of a guiding concept for the zoning plan in Vienna’s Simmering district; no individual structures. Competition winner: 1st place!

The Gasometervorfeld is a complex urban development zone in the direct vicinity of the characteristic listed gasometers in Vienna’s Simmering district. BWM Architekten and Carla Lo Landschaftsarchitektur won the “Gasometervorfeld 2.0.” competition with their Bricolage City project, which now serves as the basis for the zoning plan. The development proposal takes a differentiated look at the existing buildings and provides a sustainable framework for the further development of the residential and commercial uses. The guiding concept is characterised by a perimeter development with five different courtyards, each with its own individual atmosphere and suitable for a variety of uses, meaning that they can also be adapted to accommodate various working and living concepts in the future. Bricolage City offers both urban flair and exceptional recreational qualities with diverse open spaces and a generous green area.
