BWM Architekten and the firm’s project partner uma Architektur were the runners-up in a private competition for apartment buildings in the center of Vienna. The assignment was to develop an overall plan and a design for new apartments on the former site of Bestattung Wien (a funeral services provider) in Vienna’s 4th district. The terraced design of the three freestanding, elongated buildings creates wide, open spaces in between and allows for the optimal utilization of natural light.
Thanks to the staggered terracing of the individual buildings, each of the 98 planned apartments have their own spacious, private outdoor area. The variable layout typology developed for this project makes the residential units highly versatile.
