Two-stage property developer competition for the development of an area in Seestadt Aspern, 1220 Vienna

Winning project for lot G13 A

The “Live Life Long” project sets various priorities and utilisations with music and movement. The structural and conceptual plans support a healthy lifestyle from nutrition to exercise and mental activity. Six clearly structured buildings are planned. The configuration of the structures allows almost all units to get light from two sides and also creates exciting outdoor spaces. The multifaceted use of the ground floor zone and the premium landscape planning ensure a high quality of active spaces. The buildings are to be completed by 2022 as part of the IBA International Building Exhibition in Vienna under the overall theme of “Healthy Living”. Combining the IBA’s central theme, “New Social Neighbourhoods”, and the competition’s “Living+Working” motto, BWM’s main focus for this project was on healthy living and wellbeing. In addition to spaces for sport activities, the area will also contain therapy and counselling facilities for nutrition and wellbeing, as well as a music school with rehearsal rooms. With a kindergarten on site, even the youngest members of society can be encouraged to live consciously. Facilities such as a communal kitchen, a roof terrace and outdoor spaces with a variety of uses round off the concept.
