Three new buildings have replaced the former 100m-long official building at Modenapark 1–2. The south building, designed by BWM Architekten, is inspired by its historical surroundings. The dynamic exposed concrete façade along the street features horizontal, three-dimensional bands that create a counterpoint to the surrounding park; climbing plants on a trellis structure provide greenery in the courtyard. The flats range in size from microlofts to family-friendly units. Residents can enjoy a magnificent, unobstructed view across Modenapark and Vienna’s roofscape.

Three new buildings, which will correspond with the typical plot structure of the area, are replacing the former 100m-long official building at Modenapark 1–2. Each building is given an individual treatment, thereby avoiding the monotony of a 100m façade that seems inevitable for the residential category.

The structure at the south end of the site, designed by BWM Architekten, will be divided into two stairwells of different sizes. The wide variety of units makes the complex building extremely flexible in use and provides the ideal conditions for attractive living spaces. The units range from small, 18m2 flats to spacious, family-friendly flats with several bedrooms.

The varied, horizontally structured façade facing Modenapark is inspired by the modern bourgeois architecture of the 1930s that can be found in the area and is unique for Vienna. All flats have either a garden, terrace or balcony. One of the advantages of the location is an up to 90m unobstructed view across Modenapark, one of Vienna’s most beautiful inner city parks.
